The Northampton Primary Academy Trust (NPAT) was founded in November 2012 and was Northamptonshire’s first Multi-Academy Trust.  Since then the development of NPAT has been phenomenal and is currently a collaboration of the following vibrant and successful schools:-

  • Abington Vale Primary School
  • East Hunsbury Primary School
  • Ecton Brook Primary School
  • Headlands Primary School
  • Lings Primary School
  • Rectory Farm Primary School
  • Simon de Senlis Primary School
  • Upton Meadows Primary School
  • Weston Favell Primary School
  • Thorplands Primary School
  • Blackthorn Primary School

The NPAT Partnership is driven by a vision of innovation, high aspiration and achievement, and a commitment to sport and the arts. This approach is encapsulated in its motto:

‘Achieving Extraordinary Things’

As an NPAT school we share this common vision and we are committed to these principles, whilst retaining the freedom to innovate and develop our own identity and character. Within the partnership, each school has differing strengths and needs at different times and all schools are committed to an ethos of mutual support and sharing of practice. The appointment of Julia Kedwards as Strategic Director and two consultants for Maths and English have added to NPAT’s capacity to support all of its schools. We believe passionately in the power of collaborative working and actively promote school-to-school support.
