School Description

Progress School Northampton is located in former office premises in the centre of Northampton. It was registered as an independent school in May 2008 under the name of Education and Youth Services. The proprietorship of the school moved to Progress Schools Ltd in January 2016. The school provides full-time education for pupils in the age range 13 to 16 years who are disengaged from education or who are at risk of exclusion from education because of Inspection report: Progress School Northampton, 23–25 May 2017 Page 8 of 11 behavioural difficulties or non-attendance. The school is registered to admit up to 40 boys and girls. There are currently 35 pupils on the school roll. The school opened a second site at Thrapston in East Northamptonshire in February 2017. This was originally a temporary site to admit pupils previously in attendance at the school’s Kettering site. The Kettering site is now closed. The school aims ‘to provide high level supportive and inspirational teaching to 13 to 16 year olds at key stages 3 and 4 to ensure positive progression and readiness for the world of further education, work-based learning or employment’. The school does not use the services of any alternative providers. The school’s previous standard inspection in April 2013, and progress monitoring inspection in October 2015, took place when the school was under the proprietorship of Education and Youth Services. This is the school’s first inspection under the proprietorship of Progress Schools Ltd.
