Working with TEF to ensure high standards

Encouraging everyone to go beyond the expected!

Welcome to Thorplands Academy.  I am extremely honoured to have been appointed Principal and am looking forward to working with wonderful children and dedicated staff.

I grew up in the Eastern District and feel privileged to be working back in the heart of the community.

I am passionate about the children here at Thorplands receiving the best possible education and opportunities and, working in collaboration with parents and carers along with support from some of the best teaching staff anything can be achieved!

Our curriculum is filled with experiences to help children learn – these include the Royal Shakespeare Company and our extensive sports provision.

I am proud to be leading a school that, when asked, parents said: 

  • 99% of parents agree that their child is taught well and makes good progress
  • 97% of parents agree that their child (ren) is happy at Thorplands Academy.
  • 98% state that any concerns raised are responded to well.
  • 96% of parents agree that Thorplands Academy ensure pupils are well behaved.
  • 100% of parents agree that their child(ren) is well looked after at Thorplands Academy.
  • 99% of parents agree that children receive suitable homework for their age.
  • 100% of parents agree that the academy is well led and managed.

Going forward I hope that you will join me in upholding our core values and ensuring that each child reaches their full potential here at Thorplands.

Thorplands Academy gains the first Changemaker Award in Northamptonshire from the University of Northampton

Pupils at Thorplands Academy in Northampton have been recognised for making a positive change to their academy environment by being the first to gain the prestigious Changemaker Student award given to a school in Northamptonshire.
The pupils are the proud recipients of the award after the amazing work they did fundraising for a magnificent play tower in the school grounds which can be used by all the children.
