Welcome from the Head

Northampton International Academy is a vibrant educational community where high expectations, a passion for deep knowledge and a commitment to fostering strong personal characteristics combine to set our children and young people on the pathway to long term success.

Situated in the heart of Northampton, NIA has a strong bond with the local community outside its walls and a warm sense of community within them. As a local school with a global vision, we also look beyond our immediate location so that NIA pupils understand the wider world and how education can help them access local, national and international opportunities and experiences. We are over-subscribed in Year 7 and, when NIA is full to its capacity of 2,200, we shall be the largest free school in England. Despite our scale, we work hard to ensure that every child is known, supported and challenged as an individual. I am proud to say that we have a real holistic sense of our pupils, with an emphasis on promoting wellbeing as well as academic excellence. EMAT’s values of inclusion, innovation, inspiration, integrity and impact are tangible in all aspects of academy life.

If you watch the video of Our Story on this website, which shows how EMAT had the vision and ability to transform an old disused postal sorting office into a state-of-the-art educational hub, you will learn that NIA has transformation in its DNA. We are committed to transforming lives, opportunities and the futures of the children and young people in our care as they move through all stages of their education with us.

We firmly believe that education promotes opportunity and choice and we are committed to giving every member of our school community those advantages.

    We are looking forward to welcoming back some of our EYFS and Year 1 pupils tomorrow. All returning pupils have been assigned a bubble colour and parents/carers have been informed over what time to drop off and pick up. We are ready to go! #schoolreopeninguk

    We are very much looking forward to welcoming some of our pupils back to school next week. We've been busy making arrangements to keep staff and pupils safe and well, and hope to see more of our students return as soon as the Government says it's safe to do so #schoolsreopeninguk
