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.

Tremendous week building on Team Rushden’s determination and hard work.

On Tuesday evening the Lecture Theatre was bursting at the seams with many of our Y11’s and their parents/carers. It was wonderful to see so many there listening intently to the plans going forward for Y11. It is hard to believe that, in September, we are considering their next steps following GSCEs, but with less than 130 school days left, every day counts. It is vital that we do not miss any learning opportunities and think creatively about revision resources that we can invest in now to support Team Rushden during this important year.

On Wednesday evening we had a full governors meeting and appointed a new Chair of Governors, Tony Daverson who will be fulfilling this roll until a new trust is in place. Tony has been a governor at Rushden Academy for some time and knows the school very well. Tony has had the experience of being a Chair of Governors during his time here and I am thrilled that he will be able to support and challenge Team Rushden, thus ensuring we keep all of our promises and demands.

Another productive week! Ofsted completed their monitoring visit on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, and their report will be shared in due course.

Their findings are positive and they left thanking the staff and pupils alike, complimenting Team Rushden collectively on their openness and honesty. The pupils really did us proud, in fact they continue to conduct themselves very well on a daily basis, and their attitude in lessons is very positive.

This is exactly what we expect from everyone in Team Rushden.
