Principal’s Update : Monday 11th October

We are approaching the end of what has been a very busy term and I would like to thank all students, parents, carers and staff for their fantastic support in making this term so successful.

As you will be aware Kettering has experienced a spike in Covid-19 cases and we have not been immune to this rise in positive cases. We have been in regular contact with Public Health England and continue to place the safety of students and staff at the forefront of everything that we do. In these challenging times it is important to remember the value of education for our young people’s futures.

Virtual Open Evening

It was a privilege to welcome Year 6 families to our Virtual Open Evening last week. Thank you to all families who attended this event via our livestream on YouTube. 

A copy of the Prospectus and a recording of my presentation can be found on our website. We have also included a list of ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ in relation to the admissions process which we hope prospective parents will find useful.

We have already welcomed a large number of prospective parents into the academy for our Academy In Action tours and these continue every day through to the end of the current term on Friday 22nd October. If you wish to book a place on a forthcoming tour please do so via our website.
