About Us

We are an improving school and this summer’s GCSE results were the best in our history. We are a supportive team, committed to ensuring that our learners fulfil their potential despite any barriers they may face, and we are looking for equally passionate practitioners to join our team.

It is our goal to equip young people with the qualifications, skills and characteristics that will help them to achieve their aspirations. Our motto, ‘Be Inspired’, is demonstrated throughout our curriculum. 

Located on the outskirts of Northampton, we are situated in a great part of the country. Northampton has a £20 billion economy and sits at the heart of one of four designated Growth Areas in England, with big plans for housing and the economy. With plenty of countryside on the doorstep, it’s surprising that it’s only an hour away from London.
