Welcome to The Spires Academy

The Spires Academy is an alternative education provision for learners aged 4 to 13-years-old and whose needs cannot be met within a mainstream environment. In particular, the Academy provides placements for young people in the Northamptonshire area who exhibit social, emotional and behavioural concerns.

The Spires Academy has recently moved into our new school building in the heart of Northampton Town.

A strong wrap-around approach at the Academy enables learners to build their confidence, overcome barriers to learning and progress to a positive next step in their lives.

Time with us can significantly improve a young person’s chances in life due to our mixture of high-quality teaching, consistency of boundaries and a nurturing philosophy.

We believe that all learners have the ability to succeed and make the most of the next stages of their lives. We promote key life skills so that they have the confidence and tools to reach their full potential as learners and citizens.

The Spires Academy is part of the Catch22 Multi Academies Trust.

Vision and Ethos

Catch22 MAT provides young people with alternative and special education in order for them to progress and succeed in sustained education or employment. We do this through high quality teaching and learning based on effective relationships that enable the achievement of life skills and meaningful qualifications.

We believe all children and young people have the capacity to learn regardless of their life situation. It is our role to unlock that learning potential. We apply our methodology to open the door to learning and to re-engage excluded or marginalised young people, whose attainment has fallen behind their peers in mainstream education.

We have high aspirations for our learners and aim to:

  • close the attainment gap of our cohort compared to their peers
  • help them return to a mainstream school if this is in the best interests of the child
