Our Vision

Our vision is to achieve educational excellence, create opportunities and enrich lives.

To achieve this, our mission is to develop a Multi-Academy Trust of highly effective and sustainable schools.

Our Values

NPAT schools all share this common vision and are committed to shared values, whilst retaining the freedom to innovate and develop their own identity and character.

Aspiration and Ambition: Every child to achieve their best, every school a great school and every individual a better version of themselves.

Working Together: Achieving more through collaboration and cooperation. My school is your school; your children are 'our' children.

Integrity: A sense of moral purpose and open and honest working.  Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, as long as ever you can.

Community: Schools at the heart of their community, working together for educational excellence across Northamptonshire.

Creativity and Innovation: Thinking differently about the future whilst building on the past.

Sports and the Arts: A genuine commitment to participation and excellence in sport and the arts.

Our ambition is captured in our motto: 'Achieving Extraordinary Things' 

NPAT schools all share this common vision and are committed to these principles, whilst retaining the freedom to innovate and develop their own identity and character.

The Partnership is built on the principle of synergy; that a collaboration of vibrant and successful schools ensures that we can achieve collectively what a single school couldn’t achieve alone.   NPAT improves our schools using collaboration and innovation through partnership working that brings together children, parents, teachers and school leaders,

‘My school is your school; your children are ‘our’ children.’

Within the partnership, schools will have differing strengths and needs at different times and all schools are committed to an ethos of mutual support and sharing of practice.

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”
