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: 

100% of parents would recommend this academy to another parent
100% of parents feel that their child is well looked after at this academy
100% of parents feel that their child is taught well at this academy
100% of parents feel the academy ensures the pupils are well behaved
100% of parents feel the academy is well led and managed
100% of parents feel the school responds well to any concerns they raise
99% of parents feel that their child is happy at this academy
99% of parents feel that their child feels safe at this academy
99% of parents feel that their child makes good progress at this academy
98% of parents feel that their child receives appropriate homework for their age
98% of parents feel they receive valuable information from the academy about my child’s progress
97% of parents feel the academy deals effectively with bullying

 

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.
