No result...

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank the PTFA for contributing money to reduce the cost for the first 60 tickets that Rushden pupils’ purchase to attend the award winning surgical experience as seen on Dragons Den! Please take a look at this website for further information:


Not only do our PTFA manage to raise important funds for our pupils, but they also give up their time to support Team Rushden as seen this week at the y6 into y7 open evening.

We have been truly bowled over by the positive comments received from parents and y6 pupils this week, thank you for taking the time to email us and I am so pleased that we are now your number 1 choice. If you wish to have a further look around, please book one of the following guided tours by contacting main reception (01933 350391):

Tuesday 16th October 9 - 10am

Wednesday 17th October 11 - 12pm

Friday 19th October 9 - 10am

We have also received a glowing letter from Northants Police praising the work of Tracey Clarke and her team in the Hub. To quote… ‘I would just like to highlight the OUTSTANDING work, it is without doubt in a class of its own and is not matched by any school that I have a close relationship with’. We absolutely care and want the best for our pupils here, by working closely with the community we will achieve a better outcome for pupils within Team Rushden.

This week staff and pupils have been determined to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing, I hope that you heard our pupils with Mrs Holmes on Northampton radio on Wednesday, we are hoping to have the audio clip on our website today. Pupils brought in home-made yellow cakes to buy, they went down a treat. In fact today’s cakes from the sixth formers went down a treat too! Our sixth formers are fund raising to visit Uganda again this year, I wonder if the Ugandan Team Rushden cow has had anymore mini Team Rushden calves?! Anyway there will be further updates on how to support their expedition coming up.

We are also thrilled that as well as having Twitter, we now have a Facebook account with a few followers already, thank you! Please take a look…



On Thursday night we had our TENC evening for current year 11 pupils to see what we offer across the 3 schools, I must say there is such a vast selection of subjects on offer. Last years’ performance tables had us in the top 3 across the County. We are achieving great results for our pupils. I would encourage all year 11 pupils to talk to their teachers to fully appreciate what is on offer. It is important that they have a goal to aim for as this will really focus them to study hard for their mocks which start in a few weeks’ time. Over half term I expect y11 pupils to be organizing revision notes and accessing past paper questions from the exam board websites. Revising in bite-size chunks is beneficial rather than cramming. 5,4,3,2,1 – Go! Let’s have action before the excuses start to hold back avoiding the inevitable.

As a reminder I would ask that pupils ensure that their belongings are clearly labelled as some of our pupils are a little forgetful. We have already accumulated quite a lot lost property at reception and would like to return it the rightful owners. If your son/daughter does bring in any personal and valuable items such as cycles, scooters, phones etc. please note that it is at their own risk, this is normal school practice.

Finally, just to finish by returning to our highly successful open evening. It would not have been such a success without a team effort, our pupils, your son’s and daughter’s, were an absolute credit, without their boundless enthusiasm, their love of learning and amazing manners there is no way we would have received such compliments! Thank you for your continued faith and support in Team Rushden.

Mrs J Burton
