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 done to year 7 and year 8, their assessment data looks very promising, and I am really pleased that they are making good progress in lessons. I have seen some fantastic fish models in art and models of trenches in history recently. I should have taken a photo of the staffroom fridge as it was forever filled with huge chocolate trench cakes, they must have taken hours to make.

Year 10 took part in an enterprise event yesterday, the pupils were so confident promoting their ideas to the business dragons and the rest of their year group. It is year 8’s turn today. You will find more detail later in the bulletin about this including the winners who will be competing nationally in London next year.

Year 11 are busy preparing for their mocks, they need to email photos of their mind maps to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. the photo attachments must be labelled with their name and subject. We will be issuing prizes to the students who email the most. Some of our pupils are evaluating revision apps that they can used on their phones, pupils will select the best for the rest to trial using their phones too. We are always looking for ways to make the revision process as pain-free as possible, it needs to happen to make the difference.

The behaviour exhibited by Team Rushden pupils once again has been praised by visitors to school. The Royal British Legion were extremely complementary on how our students conducted themselves at the remembrance service, and how confident our pupils were at reading in front of the whole school. They were a huge credit to Team Rushden.

Mr Middleton shared his behaviour and attendance data this week and it is staggering how much the school has improved. Assessment data has also significantly improved across school; year 8 reports have now been published and y8 should be congratulated on an excellent set of results.

With only 3 weeks to go until Year 11 mocks, our students are being prepared well so that they have every chance to succeed. We have also set up a revision email so that Year 11 pupils can email their revision mind maps. There is a competition to see who can email the most into school with prizes being awarded to those who create the most.
