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.

This week our Academy Improvement Board (AIB) was set up with Tim Foster taking the Chair of the board. Later in the bulletin you will see a letter from Tim, I am really looking forward to working with the AIB as we continue to forge forward.

This week Team Rushden received a glowing email from Spendlove, the company who maintain our school grounds. They work with 50 other schools and have been established for around 30 years. I am grateful that they took the time to email us and pay compliments about our school site having a lack of litter, they also praised our cheerful, smartly dressed staff & students. We always set high standards of ourselves and collectively Team Rushden aim to be the best we can be. This is time and again recognized by visitors to the school. Our pupils are polite, they smile, they open doors and greet people and they are really helpful.

Wow! Another amazing week at Rushden Academy. Last night we hosted Rushden’s got Talent, it was stunning and our pupils and staff were just incredible. There are some photos included in this bulletin but they don’t do it justice, you must come and see what we do for yourselves next time, the next big event is in July, Grease.

Team Rushden are always looking for ways to improve, this week we added a couple of new quick links to our website. One is Go4Schools, if you click on this it tells you all about the product, with effect from September you will have your own log-in details and be able to access this and see information about your son/daughter.
