About Us

Weston Favell Academy is an improving school and this summer’s GCSE results were the best in our history.  In addition, our growing Sixth Form is sending ever increasing numbers of students onto prestigious universities and high quality apprenticeships as our results improve. This is the second consecutive year of significant improvement and we are confident this upward trend will continue.

It is our goal to equip young people with the qualifications, skills and characteristics that will help them to achieve their aspirations.  Our motto, ‘Be Inspired’, is demonstrated throughout our curriculum.  We are a supportive team, committed to ensuring that our learners fulfil their potential despite any barriers they may face. We are looking for equally passionate practitioners to join our team.

Located on the outskirts of Northampton, we are situated in a great part of the country. Northampton has a £20billion economy and sits at the heart of one of four designated Growth Areas in England, with big plans for housing and the economy. With plenty of countryside on the doorstep it’s surprising that it’s only an hour away from London.
