Good afternoon

This week we welcomed our new Year 6’s and the new Year 12’s into Team Rushden. The Year 6 Transition Evening went very well and the pupils are very excited about joining us in September. The new Year 12’s went on trips and trialed different subjects to really appreciate what they could be embarking on in September. Most schools only have 1 day to introduce them to the new ways of sixth form working but here at TENC we make a week of it!


We are very proud to inform you that our Year 9 pupils have made it to the final round in a competition led by Northamptonshire Police about avoiding knife crime. The final will be held at the Castle Theatre on the 8th July, the Year 9 team did very well and we wish them all the best competing in the final.

Last night we hosted the Year 7 parents evening, attendance was very good and the feedback from parents will keep us skipping to the end of this busy half term. Thank you so much.

The Duke of Edinburgh pupils will be setting off on their second expedition today, they represented the school so well last weekend and we wish them every success again this weekend and on their final expedition again next week. There will be some tired faces on Monday!

Also to note that tonight is the Year 13 prom and we are sure that they will have an amazing evening. It is hard to believe that this chapter is about to close for our students and a new one begin; we ask that you keep happy, healthy and in touch!

Next week we have the Year 11 prom to look forward to, the BTEC Level 3 Performing Arts Showcase, Year 6 transition days and another DofE expedition. Team Rushden are never sat still!

Many thanks for reading, have a good weekend.

Mrs J Burton
