Students attend the Ryman National Enterprise Challenge Launch in Covent Garden

A group of students were invited to attend The National Enterprise Challenge Competition launch event in Covent Garden. Last year Northampton Academy’s Key Stage 4 team ‘Vendinary’ won this competition. The students were very excited and enjoyed a fantastic evening featuring talks from all the challenge supporters and the ambassador of the competition, former ‘Dragon’ Theo Paphitis. During his speech Mr Paphitis addressed Team Vendinary directly saying “Northampton Academy has pulled at my heart strings and believe me, they are hard to find” and he later thanked them on twitter saying “Great to see and hear from @northacad students too and thanks for my card - much appreciated”

Mr Parnell has his hair sprayed multicolour for charity

Northampton Academy holds a tradition of fundraising for good causes and today was no different – student councillors persuaded the Principal, Mr Parnell, to allow them to spray his hair in rainbow colours. 

The event took place in the assembly hall at break time, with students purchasing tickets for 20p to watch. All proceeds of this event, along with a sweetie jar raffle the students organised are going to Northampton General Hospital Chemotherapy Ward. So far we have raised over £200 which is fantastic!
