An academy in Northampton is playing host to a sixth form open evening on Thursday, November 10 to show year 11 students the £1 million ultra-modern workspaces.

The Northampton Academy is launching it’s up-to-the-minute space, which has seven classrooms all with interactive screens and wi-fi connectivity, as well as a large lecture theatre and a boardroom.

The school ensures students are well prepared for progression to university, employment or training and have organised for university representatives to talk to pupils at the open evening to answer any questions about the future.

Lesley Powell, director of Sixth Form said: “Having these new facilities really allows us to enhance our students learning even further than before.

“For example, having full use of the lecture theatre and boardroom helps to give them a real insight into life beyond Northampton Academy Sixth Form in a university or working environment.”

The current sixth form students now have access to their own library and a spacious common room where they can study and take their breaks in between classes.

The Northampton Academy sixth form is said to offer a wide range of A-Level and vocational courses with expert university guidance for students.

It is understood that students leave the academy with a university place, an apprenticeship or employment with training.
