Purple Oaks Academy


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

It is a privilege to be the Principal of Purple Oaks Academy. With 104 students currently on roll we are a busy and popular school. Our students are fantastic and make the most of the opportunities available to them. I'm proud of how they thrive during their time at the academy. The students are supported by a dedicated and experienced team of over 60 staff members! 

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 currently has students from Reception to Year 11. 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.

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.
