KSA’s recent open evening proved that the Academy is becoming an increasingly popular choice for families, with more than 800 people attending.
Following a series of tours throughout October, year 6 children and their parents were invited to meet staff and find out more about academy life at the open evening last week.
Mr Campbell said: "We are dedicated to ensuring the success of every student. Everyone is committed to creating the conditions to enable that success - be it academic, sporting or cultural - to be achieved. The excellent student care and an innovative curriculum are the foundation upon which our Academy is based."
The Academy has created a personalised approach to every student's learning and each student is individually monitored by a Learning Mentor who tracks their progress. The curriculum is flexible and is tailored to each student, allowing them to study a range of academic and vocational courses, both on and off site.
Parents with children who would like a place at the Academy should be aware of the following dates:

What our students think of life at Kettering Science Academy:
"It promotes friendship between younger and older children and that makes it easier for younger ones to settle in. The lessons are good quality and interesting."
Joe Smallman, Year 8
"The tutoring system is positive because you make friends in different years and they look out for you like an older brother would. The teachers are always looking for ways to improve and find better ways to help student learn more."
Morgan Aspinall, Year 10
"Teachers and other students encourage you to do better. At the start of each lesson you know what you will achieve and how you will achieve it - having targets helps you to keep moving forward."
Abhilasha Kapur, Year 10
