The Northampton Primary Academy Trust currently has two vacancies for Trustees with financial skills and acumen to sit on our Board of Trustees.

NPAT was established as an education trust in 2012 by five Headteachers with a vision to ‘provide educational excellence, create opportunities and enrich lives through high-quality learning experiences for children. We aim to be a trust of highly effective and sustainable schools. We want children to leave our schools working at age expectation or above, with cultural capital and as rounded, grounded individuals who are ready to engage with the next stage of their learning in a positive way.

NPAT is a group of schools working in collaboration as one entity to improve and maintain high educational standards across the group. Our passion for excellent educational provision, along with a belief that children must remain at the heart of every decision made by our leaders at all levels, led us to develop a trust where we encourage our children, staff, and friends to ‘Achieve Extraordinary Things’.

Through our links with partner agencies such as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Gallery, and the University of Northampton we aim for our schools to demonstrate exemplary practice across the whole curriculum and with a particular focus on sport, dance, drama, and the arts. We want our children to achieve the highest academic standards at the same time as enjoying a rich, challenging, and relevant curriculum which focuses on their personal development and prepares them for their place in the wider world. To this end, teacher experts across the trust have been developing a broad, ambitious, knowledge-rich curriculum that incorporates rich texts, vocabulary development, and the science of how children learn. Our NPAT Curriculum Aims and Principles document outlines our commitment to this.

Great schools need great leaders and great staff, and NPAT schools pride themselves on attracting and retaining the best people to work in and lead our schools. The Trust provides a range of professional development opportunities for staff including training, NPAT network groups, bespoke support from our trust education team, and our annual NPAT Governance and Teaching conferences. 

Against this backdrop, two of our Trustees have come to the end of their term and the Trust is actively looking for two Trustees who will use their professional knowledge and skills to assist the Trust in future growth plans.

If you are looking for a way to give back to the communities of Northampton and to help shape the strategic direction of our Trust of over 4,000 children and 800 staff, this could be the opportunity for you.  To find out more, please visit our website at or contact Juliette Pierson at recruitment@npatschools,org.
