Thank you for visiting!

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.

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:

Thank you to parents attending the year 9 parents evening last night, it was good to see so many positive parents and pupils. I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that reports will be changing in the near future so that you get a true reflection of how you son/daughter is performing over a period of time and a snap shot of how they perform under exam conditions in an assessment. We have listened to your comments and believe that this will help and be a fairer process.

This is an incredibly stressful time in households at the moment as pupils prepare for their forthcoming exams. There is a lot of support available to help during this period, whether it be advice on coping with the exam period or last minute revision tips. I would say prepare by not leaving it to the last minute and cramming, to know how you best learn by trying different strategies and give yourself breaks (as long as the breaks don’t become longer than the revision period)! We have invested in GCSE pod for all pupils and it is worth accessing and watching the video clips. You cannot beat practicing past papers and reading through examiners mark schemes so I would highly recommend that. We will be offering holiday revision at May half term again.
