Apply now for 2019


Welcome to Northampton International Academy (NIA). We are a brand new school, based in the centre of Northampton, providing high quality educational provision for young people from across the local area.

Tim resized 2We are ready to move into our permanent accommodation in September. NIA is strongly committed to serving the local community, our all through school celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of individuals so that everyone can flourish and thrive. NIA is a local school with a global vision, we work with our pupils to raise aspiration by harnessing their passion, promoting engagement, and striving for excellence in everything that we do.

The primary phase pupils have benefited from an extremely successful partnership with Castle Academy under the leadership of Lorna Beard since opening in 2016. This has been a very positive arrangement for NIA and saw excellent results for the reception and year 1 pupils over the last two years.

The all-through nature of NIA will become a practical reality in September when all phases of the Academy move into the permanent facilities. We are at capacity in reception and in years 7,8 & 9 but we do have a limited number of places available in years 1 & 2 for September 2018. 

The nature of growing a school from scratch is that we are always looking forwards. In September we will be welcoming families, pupils and even staff looking to join our project in September 2019 when we will yet again grow by two full year groups but also open a brand new 6th form provision for Northampton.

Our Open Evenings on 25th September and 3rd October are open to all and will be a great opportunity for people to come and see for themselves just how special a project this is.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to find out more about us.

    @NorthantsCodger We understand the frustration and are looking forward to the completion. Our role is to work with the building as it has been provided and our teachers and pupils are doing that on a daily basis. Please come in and have a look around we would love to give you a tour.
