Thank you for visiting!

KEEG5048 smallI am delighted to welcome you to our rapidly improving school, Rushden Academy. This year the school celebrates its Ruby Anniversary; originally opening in 1977 as Chichele College for Girls, later in 1991 it amalgamated to become Rushden School, which later became Rushden Academy, as we know it today. On site you will find an outstanding ‘First Friends’ day nursery, a wonderful, vibrant environment where some of our pupils gain work experience. We also have our own Hair and Beauty Salon that is open to the public, our trainees gain first-hand experience and the results they gain are top class.

Performing Arts and PE are strengths of the school, they regularly showcase performances or coach youngsters in local schools. Following a recent Ofsted monitoring inspection where the inspector observed a performing arts rehearsal they wrote that ‘pupils of all ages and abilities engaged with enormous enthusiasm and enjoyment. The high standard of their performance reflected dedication, hard work and collaborative team spirit’.

We are proud of the curriculum we have on offer, not only does it deliver the content pupils need to excel in today’s society it also develops their imaginations. We are excited about our plans to further develop the extra-curricular provision and bespoke interventions our pupil’s access. Team Rushden produce weekly bulletins, reading through these you soon get a strong sense of our values and purpose, and also get to see many fantastic photos of our pupils in action in the extra-curricular activities we already offer.

As the Principal of Rushden Academy, I am determined that we will deliver our pledge of outstanding leadership, excellent teaching, exemplary behaviour and great learning.  Ofsted recently stated that ‘leaders are highly visible and extremely proactive in supporting staff and pupils, that leaders are completely involved in all aspects of the school’s work’(June 2017). In terms of the behaviour Ofsted commented that our pupils fully understood the rules, routines and values; that the anti-bullying charter was well understood and pupils commented that bullying was rare and pupils also commented that staff would deal with incidents swiftly and effectively. We do have a highly supportive pastoral system, which is focused on ensuring our pupils succeed and leave us as confident, articulate and aspirational young adults.

This year we appointed several pupil prefects, this is due to expand even further so that our pupil voice is very powerful and they continue to shape our continued improvements. Everyone in Team Rushden has a role and responsibility, we have built a culture where together, students and staff are united in transforming our school. In Team Rushden we expect each member to be smart, respectful, hard-working and resilient and we are unwavering in our goal to be the best we can be. As the Principal I believe that it is our duty to ensure that every team member leaves Rushden Academy wiser, more fulfilled and ready to embrace new opportunities and take charge of their lives.

Our website aims to give you further insight into our values and purpose. However, to fully appreciate everything Rushden Academy can offer, I warmly invite you to come and see for yourself. I very much look forward to welcoming you and your family and speaking to you personally whilst touring the school.

Last week was a busy week and I am pleased to report that the school continues to be calm, the classrooms are busy learning environments and the students are happy in their learning. It is a pleasure to walk our corridors with visitors to see how Team Rushden operate on a daily basis.Last week was a busy week and I am pleased to report that the school continues to be calm, the classrooms are busy learning environments and the students are happy in their learning.

Welcome back

I am really thrilled that our year 9 pupils got to see Tim Peake’s Spacecraft tour when the Science touring exhibition came to Rushden Academy this week. Our pupils used virtual reality to experience what it feels like to sit inside the Soyuz’s descent module as it makes its dangerous high-speed journey back to earth. It certainly made some of our pupils feel quite travel sick.

Year 11 have had 1 to 1 interviews with leaders in the school to discuss their next steps and there will be further careers meetings with external advisors to help prepare them for their futures either at TENC college or beyond. We obviously have a journey before then.
