I am delighted to welcome you to our rapidly improving school, Rushden Academy. We are part of a highly successful trust called Tove Learning Trust (TLT) and have excellent collaborative networks across the trust. Staff really enjoy working at Rushden Academy and our high staff retention figures demonstrate this fully.

Team Rushden are on the cusp of something great, our results are rapidly improving and our intake numbers are increasing. Visitors are impressed when they visit our school commenting on the strong Team Rushden values permeating across all aspects of school life. We have built a culture where together, students and staff are united in transforming our school.

We are proud of our achievements to date and regularly communicate this widely. There is a strong drive to excel in lessons and to behave respectfully towards each other and our community. We are proud of the curriculum that we have on offer, not only does it deliver the content pupils need to excel in today’s society but it also develops their imaginations.

Our sixth form provision, The East Northamptonshire College (TENC), is shared with two local secondary schools, sharing our expertise not only at KS5 but also at KS4 with cross moderation and quality assurance systems. We also have an outstanding nursery onsite, which is open term-time only and many of our staff use this excellent provision for their children.

Good afternoon

A week today the prospective catering companies will be delivering their sales pitch to a selection panel and we will be making a very important decision for the team. Some of our pupils will be sampling the food on offer and giving their opinions. The successful company will officially start in February 2019. Please share you views with us by completing a quick questionnaire https://goo.gl/forms/MGQwxnH05JZOpIMI2 Today the Northamptonshire County Council Environment Health Officer visited the kitchen and gave it the top rating of 5 stars, our Kitchen staff are highly experienced and deserve this top accolade.

You say, we listen and we act.

First of all you may have noticed that the last few bulletins have been emailed on Monday’s to give us time to ensure photos and correspondence meets GDPR regulations. However, a parent commented that her time to read this was at the swimming pool on a Saturday and receiving them on a Monday meant that she did not read it, so we’ve improved our system in school and will return to emailing on a Friday. We do not want to miss any opportunity of sharing with you Team Rushden’s fantastic work.

What's On?
