No result...

Exciting times ahead for Team Rushden; the listening period ended on the 18th January which means no more comments can be submitted to the DFE regarding the trust transfer. The evidence will now be considered and decisions made regarding the next steps, which you will be informed about.

Building work has started on site and we anticipate completion by the end of February. We are making good some of the walk way areas, and building a fence down the side of the school to increase security. Reception will be moved to the vocational centre and we will be increasing parking spaces to cope with demand.

This week our vocational course offer and delivery was inspected successfully, thank you to Mr Brotherston and the departments who deliver BTECs. This is really important for us as we carefully consider what the best curriculum offer is for our pupils.

Our vision for the coming year is certainly to get to good and continue our journey to outstanding. We believe in Team Rushden and working together to make this happen.

Every minute of every day matters and I expect lessons to be well planned and behaviour to be exemplary so that great learning takes place. We are here to learn and have many opportunities to excel. The extra-curricular programme continues to grow, today we added basketball to the provision, pupils ask and we aim to deliver.

The PTFA (parent group) are seeking extra recruits, if you could spare the time and would like to have a say and shape our school please contact Ms J Holmes on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
