Apply now for 2018


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 opened in September 2016 to Reception and Year 7 students, and are now building on our solid foundations in preparation for our move into our permanent accommodation in September 2018. We are strongly committed to serving our local community, our all through school celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of individuals so that all 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 are continuing the extremely successful partnership with Castle Academy under the leadership of Lorna Beard (Principal of NIA Primary). This has been a very positive arrangement for NIA and saw excellent results for the reception students over the last academic year. The all-through nature of NIA is strengthened through the work with Castle and their support during the construction of the permanent NIA building is greatly appreciated. Places are currently available in Reception and Year 1. We are at capacity within our secondary phase but are accepting applications for students to join us in September 2018 as our capacity will grow considerably and we will be able to accept students into years 8 and 9 (from September 2018).

Our outward facing approach prepares our community for success in the modern world and transforms life choices. Through a broad and modern curriculum we are working to ensure that every pupil can be the best that they can be.

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

    @WillyGilder Nothing too surprising I hope. We are growing quickly. We are fully staffed for this September but like to get our recruitment done early so that we can focus on the day to day experiences for the pupils. Come and visit us in September...
