Good afternoon

Really pleased that our year 9s achieved 3rd prize out of 21 secondary schools for their dramatic piece on preventing knife crime. They have been tasked to take this further and educate youngsters on how to tackle knife crime effectively. A really good achievement for the pupils and one that will benefit others too.


Other achievements this week included our year 10s achieving a silver award in the Dragons Den competition and our year 12s achieving the gold prize in their Rotary speaking competition. There is certainly the drive and motivation to do well at Rushden Academy.

We hope that this week there have been some real highlights for all of our pupils, there has been a huge breadth and range of opportunities available to develop their knowledge and skills. Over the next two bulletin editions I am sure you will see a range of photos and articles showcasing what we have been up to.

Next week we have the following to look forward to:

  • Twelfth Night Open Air Theatre for y12 English Literature students
  • Year 12 Residential
  • Our local primary schools visiting and getting a taste of our wonderful Addams Family performance.
  • Addams Family school show on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening

Another very exciting week ahead, however in the meantime have a wonderful party in the park!

Mrs J Burton
