Welcome to Northampton Academy

Northampton Academy is a Good School (Ofsted 2016), and we serve the needs of our 1400 students, their families and the local community as a successful, vibrant, welcoming and inclusive 11-18 academy. Although we are oversubscribed, we are non-selective.

We are pleased with our GCSE results which place Northampton Academy as the number one secondary school in Northampton for the progress made by our students between starting in Year 7 and finishing in Year 11.  Our Progress 8 score of 0.37 is in the top 7% in the country. 

At A Level, our students achieved an ALPS 3 on a 1-9 scale, with 1 being the best. This is consistent with some of the very best Post-16 providers in the country and many of our students go on to Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities.
