Purple Oaks Academy


Welcome to Purple Oaks Academy and thank you for visiting our website.

I am delighted to have been appointed Principal of our academy and I am looking forward to working closely with the students and their parents over the coming months.

Purple Oaks Academy is a special school situated in Kingsthorpe, Northampton and is a free school. Places at the school are commissioned by Northamptonshire LA for children with an Education, Health and Care Plan. The academy opened in September 2017 for children in Reception to Year 7 and will expand each year. Initially, we opened in temporary accommodation within Green Oaks Primary Academy and moved into our brand-new purpose-built building in January 2018.

Purple Oaks Academy aims to educate students in a positive, caring and supportive environment.  We value and celebrate achievement at an individual level. We strive to make our students the central focus of all we do.

The vision of Purple Oaks Academy is to ensure students have enhanced educational opportunities through specialist teaching and learning approaches.

Do have a browse through our website, which we intend to be a useful resource for students, families, our own staff and other professionals. I hope you are interested by what you find.
