About Bosworth Independent College
- Principal's Message
Principal's Message"As a college we believe that our students deserve the very best, and that our one aim is for them to become the very best that they can be – both academically and as young people. As the Principal, I truly believe that we do this by creating a very focussed and hard-working ethos, which is complemented by a friendly, supportive and genuinely caring community.
I am hugely proud of what we achieve with our students each year, due in part to the very hard work of the students themselves, but also to the extraordinarily professional and talented staff that I work with. Your children could not be in better hands.”
Elisabeth Carter M.A.
- Executive Principal
Executive Principal's Message"Since I first became associated with Bosworth over 13 years ago, it has grown considerably. However, throughout that time of growth we have all worked hard to keep the things that make it so special – academic excellence, a sense of community but, most importantly, we have kept the care, support and concern for the individual.
We believe everyone is unique, and that they should be treated as such.”
Michael McQuin M.Ed.

Life in the UKBosworth Independent College is located in Northampton, a town with a rich and distinguished history, situated in the heart of England.With London only an hour away by road or rail, and the UK’s other major university cities within easy reach, it is the perfect learning environment in a central location.
Northampton is a market town surrounded by beautiful countryside, and today has all the added benefits of modern living. It offers the perfect environment for our students with the town centre just a twenty-minute walk from the College. Here students can enjoy some leisure and social facilities as well as a shopping complex.
The county of Northamptonshire is famously referred to as “the Rose of the Shires” and our own College emblem reflects the relevance of the Tudor Rose and the historic links to the famous Battle of Bosworth that saw the birth of the Tudor dynasty.
