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

We have had a busy, busy week and our pupils have, once again, done us proud. We have had 2 large Ryman Enterprise Challenge Events, set up by Theo Paphitis: https://www.nationalenterprisechallenge.co.uk/. Pupils competed against each other to be selected to represent the school at a national event in London. Photos and winners can be found later in this bulletin.

Good afternoon

We were pleased to welcome so many guests to Rushden Academy this week. We had our annual Careers Fair on Thursday and our pupils met with a significant number of businesses both local and national, some were offering apprenticeships and were happy to come back and work with some of our pupils in preparing them with the soft skills required to secure a job or course later in life. We will take them up on this kind offer! There were university and college representatives at the event too offering a huge range of courses. It was good to see the Navy, Royal Marines, RAF and Army present. In addition the civil service was also represented as well. Pupils discussed their ideas and aspirations and many took away booklets to carefully look through. If you have something to offer or even a contact who could help our community then we really want to know. Could you please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
