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.

The clouds dispersed and the sun shone on Team Rushden last Monday as we collectively remembered those that gave their lives for our freedom. We were joined by guests some of whom were military veterans who had such amazing stories to tell. One gentleman who was 96 years young shared his own upbringing; he was one of 12 and said they were as poor as church mice but the values his mother instilled in him, he continues to stand by today, and they were: don’t lie because it’ll catch you out, if you can’t find it in the co-op (no large supermarkets back then) you don’t need it and finally respect the police. He was such a fantastic man who served our country and received an OBE, we also met with an MBE too. Some of our pupils dressed in their air and army cadet uniforms along with pupils in guides and scouting uniforms further added to the magnificence of the service and joined our guests for tea and biscuits. Our guests were very complimentary about their politeness and kindness. Later in the bulletin there will be photos to see.

Welcome back the calendar looks busy from now until December and I am sure it will be another hard working but fun packed half term. We are looking at how we can involve the community more and looking at how we can support our most vulnerable neighbours during the harsh winter months. We have a Learning for Life Day and at some point all pupils will be having subject assessments with Y10 and Y11 sitting some mock exam papers in the Sports Hall. All pupils will be receiving reports at the end of the term but of course you can keep updated by using Go4Schools.
