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.

Well we did indeed see some sunshine over the bank holiday weekend and although the weather has not been quite as warm it has still be good enough to open the school field. It has always amazed me to see so many of our students play football, it really is a sight to behold.

We must however insist that our students do respect our rules of not leaving litter, not only could this could be a health and safety issue but also it is incredibly unsightly. There is no excuse, the student forum asked for bigger bins we bought bigger bins and more of them, so it really is not acceptable to litter the environment.

It is official we now belong to Tove Learning Trust, this is excellent news for the school and already we are forging strong relationships. Resources are being shared and staff from Sponne School, which is graded as outstanding with outstanding exam results, are working closely with our teachers here. The support and challenge received so far is second to none, and I truly believe that we have a very exciting future ahead.

Year 10 were buzzing today discussing applications for Head Boy and Head Girl positions and their deputies. I am pleased that our students want to represent our school so passionately and continue to work together driving through improvements. It is an excellent opportunity for our pupils, Mr Middleton and Mrs Finney have carefully considered how we can develop their role and responsibilities so they gain invaluable experiences. Here are a few:
