Lodge Park Academy

Lodge Park Academy understands the importance of a strong academic foundation. Our academy offers a diverse curriculum and enrichment offering to create well-rounded and confident students.

Welcome from the Principal

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this wonderful school. I hope this message from me, and the rest of our website, gives you a sense of our school. If you and your child are looking at Lodge Park Academy as a potential school, and you'd like to speak to me, please feel free to call 01536 203817 and my lovely receptionist will arrange for me to call you back. 

I believe strongly that children flourish in an unbeatable learning climate, where lessons are disruption-free and expectations are sky-high. This is what we have at Lodge Park Academy.

All children can reach their potential if they have access to expert teachers, an ambitious knowledge-rich curriculum and excellent pastoral care. We are very proud to have these in abundance at Lodge Park Academy. 

We encourage our young people to be ambitious for themselves and their future. We teach them how to be respectful and to have impeccable manners. We expect them to represent their families, their school and their town with pride.

We believe that children learn best when they are safe, well and happy, so we put a huge focus on pastoral care. We call it 'meticulous care' because we make sure that no child ever falls through the cracks. 

Lodge Park Academy has been undergoing a transformation in recent years. The highest standards of behaviour and teaching are ensuring our students are safe, happy and fully engaged in learning. In partnership with parents, the community and local industry, we are carving out an education for Lodge Park students which will secure excellent outcomes for our students.

Ofsted visited our school in July 2021 and took the school out of Special Measures. Inspectors found that we are GOOD for Behaviour & Attitudes, Personal Development, Leadership & Management and Sixth Form. The area we are continuing to improve is Quality of Education, which remains 'RI' as we build and refine our curriculum. Please take some time to read our Ofsted report HERE as it gives a real flavour of who we are. 

I am so proud to serve my community as the Principal of Lodge Park Academy. Established in 1964, Lodge Park Academy is the oldest school in Corby. My father was among the first cohort of students. Many of the students we serve today are the children and grandchildren of former students. The connection between Lodge Park Academy and the history and growth of Corby sets us apart. We are part of the fabric of Corby life, and we will lead continue to lead the education of the town’s children for many years to come.
