Northampton Academy Values

We believe that, of the United Learning Values, the three that best define Northampton Academy are Respect, Determination and Ambition. Our vision, our mission, and our values have been arrived at after consultation with staff and students at Northampton Academy.

Every decision we take, from appointing staff, to creating policies and deciding student pathways, is made using these values.  We expect all staff to exhibit them and use them in decision-making. We encourage all young people, and their families, to work within these values.
