Huxlow Academy and Rushden Academy work together to create one post 16 learning community. We have an excellent tradition in examination success in A Level and BTEC courses and year on year our students gain places at top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. However, we believe that being in the sixth form is not just about gaining academic qualifications.
All our students follow a wide-ranging PSHE, careers, general studies and enrichment programme and all Year 12 students are encouraged to play an active role in the community.
Social activities, residentials, public speaking, peer mentoring, work experience, university visits, theatre trips and sporting competitions are a few examples of the things our students have taken part in this year. Choosing the right place for your post-16 study is an extremely important decision to make and we aim to provide you with a high quality education to suit your needs.
Students who choose to study here will enjoy their time with us, and will feel valued, challenged and supported in their ambition to achieve the best they can.
We are incredibly proud to share that our Area Director from Tove Learning Trust and Previous Rushden Academy Principal Mrs Burton was a nominee for Headteacher of the Year at last week's Northamptonshire Education Awards! #TeamRushden Congratulations! https://t.co/6ZW3H5qwyN
