NPAT - ‘Achieving Extraordinary Things’

Welcome to Thorplands Primary School.  I am extremely honoured to be the Headteacher of such a wonderful and inclusive school.

I grew up in the Eastern District and I feel privileged to be working in the heart of the community with amazing children and dedicated staff.

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 the best teaching staff anything can be achieved!

Our curriculum is planned carefully so that our children are leaving Thorplands for secondary school fully equipped with the knowledge and skills to help them be successful in the next stage of their education and life.  We have filled our curriculum with experiences to help children learn – these include the Royal Shakespeare Company, Northamptonshire Music and Performing Arts Trust and our extensive sports provision

As a school, all of our members, children and adults, live by our code of conduct and our five values of Respect, Responsibility, Curiosity, Perseverance and Courage.  All of these are threaded through our curriculum and prepare the children for life expectations.

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

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.
