The vision for the Northampton International Sixth Form is to raise the aspirations of young adults by continuing to nurture a passion for learning, enriching the student experience and securing outcomes which exceed expectations. We aspire to have NIA post-16 provision to become and remain the sixth form of choice for our local community and wider community beyond.
The Sixth Form represents the culmination of a learner’s time in education and is the platform from which they will continue in education, training or employment. Our aim is to create confident, resilient and well-rounded adults who have an aspiration for self-improvement and are able to compete equally with their peers in a world beyond the sixth form. We strive to ensure that our broad curriculum offer continually evolves meets the needs of learners so that the Sixth Form becomes and remains truly comprehensive and competitive.
In order to achieve this, we concentrate on:
- Student outcomes
- Student well-being
- Developing a passion for lifelong learning
- Developing independent learners who are robust and resilient
- Fostering a sense of community responsibility
The DNA of NIA is the golden thread that runs throughout the Academy: Collaboration, responsibility, respect, care, excellence and aspiration and its evolution through our academy reaches its summation in our Sixth Form. We pride ourselves on knowing our students in terms of academic ability, and emotional capacity. We treat our students as individuals.
