Welcome to Northampton Academy

Northampton Academy is a 'Good and Improving' school (Ofsted 2019), and we serve the needs of our 1500 students, their families and the local community.  We are a successful, vibrant, welcoming and inclusive 11-18 Academy.  Although we are oversubscribed, we are non-selective.

We provide an education with character, encompassing our core values of Respect, Determination and Ambition alongside our character values of Tolerance and Integrity; which are central to our decision-making. We ensure that these values run through our policies, appointments and all our interactions with the young people.

We are successful at Key Stage 4 and 5 in both attainment and progress terms and have excellent rates of progression to University.  Many of our students go to Oxbridge and Russell Group Universities.

We pride ourselves on communication. Replies to parents are usually the same day and always within two working days utilising our strong pastoral structure.

We are happy to show you around the Academy, if you would like to book a tour, please complete the form here and we will arrange for someone to show you around.
