Brooke Weston Academy

Brooke Weston Academy is one of the top achieving schools in England and rated by Ofsted as Outstanding.

Led by Associate Principal Shaun Strydom, this innovative school leads the way in educational practices and sets the benchmark for our other Brooke Weston Trust schools.

It has a proud history of educating young people from Corby and Kettering since 1991 and the ideas and ethos pioneered at the academy have been recognised at a national level. Its examination results are regularly top of the local league tables.

Alongside academic achievement the academy also focuses on developing the whole person and seeks to offer many experiences both in and beyond the classroom. These opportunities help to instil in its students the qualities of confidence, respect, compassion, determination, teamwork and pride; all of which are essential in life and stand them in good stead for the years ahead.

Year on year 90% of students leaving Brooke Weston Academy go on to study at University or secure employment with further training opportunities.

In 2021 the Government announced that Brooke Weston Academy, which formerly operated a Teaching School Alliance, was designated as a Teaching School Hub, which will provide professional development and courses for teachers across Northamptonshire.
