We are very proud of our flourishing Sixth Form which year-on-year, has seen excellent results and students moving on to top universities or highly skilled apprenticeships.
Northampton Academy offers over 25 courses with strong provision and results in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Students have access to our new state-of-the-art study centre exclusively for Sixth Form.
We expect students to progress from advanced study to university and we provide a tailored programme of support to help them. Specialist support is provided for students to apply to Oxbridge and for preparation for subject specific entrance examinations for Russell Group Universities, where our past students have been very successful.

The Sixth Form students are supported with personal tutors, UCAS guidance and mentoring from businesses such as Barclaycard. They also have access to a first-class enrichment and careers programme along with the opportunity to work with employers and also mentor younger students. Year 12 students complete work experience, further enhancing their skills and experience for higher education or the workplace. The full range of options is explored to focus on the best interest of the individual student, including apprenticeships, vocational courses, employment with training and A Levels.
The Motto of the Academy is ‘The Best in Everyone’, and we work hard with all of our students to enable them to achieve their full potential in accordance with the Academy values of Respect, Determination and Ambition. In return, we expect hard work and commitment from our students throughout their time in the Sixth Form.
