No result...

Another productive week for Team Rushden. This week we took some of our y11 pupils to Cambridge University to inspire them, they thoroughly enjoyed the experience; it was good to see this being tweeted last night. We certainly live in a central area with so many top universities on the doorstep.

On Monday 8th October it will be one of the many highlights of the school year. We will be opening our doors to welcome prospective year 6, and even year 5 pupils, and their families to Rushden Academy. Many of our current year 7s are eager to share their experience to date and help on the evening, which is very much appreciated. Thank you for supporting this event, can you please collect your son/daughter from the library at 8.15pm and ensure they return the written consent form. I am really looking forward to sharing Team Rushden’s successes especially or summer’s great examination results and showcase how the school has transformed. I am also looking forward to sharing all of the opportunities we have here. Staff work tirelessly to ensure they deliver the best education, you will be able to see this in action and you will also be able to see how we care for our environment.

Next Thursday year 11 pupils will be attending the TENC sixth form evening at Ferrer’s school on behalf of all three schools, Three Schools One Vision of Excellence. Our offer is second to none and I am thrilled to see so many of our pupils returning year on year. There is an excellent video show casing the TENC experience, this will soon be published on Rushden Academy’s website. We are a good sixth form with good outcomes, no wonder 70% of last year’s year 11 returned, I am so pleased to hear that every ex-year 11 pupil is accounted for and 100% of our pupils have secured some form of education, employment and/or training. This is another statistic that beats the national picture. Recently three of our current y12 students, who had gone elsewhere, have swiftly returned to join TENC commenting that they get a good education here. Absolutely!!

Kind regards

Mrs J Burton
