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.

We are making a few changes to improve site safety and the overall impression of our school. This will be happening over the next few weeks and here are a few things to look out for.

There is an exam board outside the main hall to inform our students of forthcoming examinations, expectations and other important information. Seating plans for the Y11 mock exams will be the first to be displayed along with all the strict protocols that must be adhered to. Mrs Chambers will keep the exam board updated.

The Chichele Suite will become the sixth form area and the room within the suite will become the sixth form office. The sixth form area (Vocational Building) will be used for master classes, quiet areas for exams and there will be a separate meeting room available. The aim is to have this up and running at the start of December before the Y11 exams start so that our sixth form have their own seating area.

Welcome back!

The school had a little make-over last week with some areas painted and some rather large mirrors put up in the main hall to support our dance and drama students particularly. Many resources have recently arrived in school to support teaching and learning in all classrooms.
