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.

Another productive week and fantastic progress being made. Year 7, 8 & 9 data is looking incredibly positive and the year 7 parents evening last night was a triumph. The pupil helpers were just amazing, they guided parents and kept teachers happy with drinks and biscuits, they were a real credit to the school and, all in all, it was a really positive evening.

Next week we start the Y11 mock exams, pupils have been preparing well and there is a real drive to succeed. Our year 11’s are hungry for success, it made me smile tonight as we were seeing our pupils off site safely I reminded a group of year 11’s about the power hour where they focus solidly on revision and prep, their response was never mind a power hour, it’s more like power 3 hours! Excellent comeback.

The Learning For Life day was rewarding for Team Rushden. Such a lot of time and effort went into planning the PSHE day by the pastoral team and pupils commented that they thoroughly enjoyed learning about how to keep healthy and participating in the variety of activities available. We also invited in several guest speakers and they were very complimentary about the attitude of our pupils. I think a highlight for me was watching the final Y10 presentations and hearing Adam Ait Ali sing to all of year 10 and receiving rapturous applause from his peers. Great Team Rushden spirit.

Year 11 have been very focused on preparing for their GCSEs with the first set of exams in French, Dance, Drama and Art. At the end of this bulletin please find the Y11 subject revision lists for the mock exams. Paper versions have been issued. Things that Y11 should be doing include:

Accessing their exam board websites and reading the specifications

Practicing GCSE exam questions and reading through mark-schemes

Using revision guides to make revision notes emailing photos of their revision to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
