Year 13 Higher Education Evening (16/10/19)

The Sixth Form Team will be hosting a Higher Education event for year 13 students and parents/carers. The evening is designed to help parents support their children through the long and often complex process of applying for university, apprenticeships and other opportunities. We held a similar evening last year and we felt that it made a very significant difference to the quality of students’ applications, while reducing some of the pressures on students preparing for major exams. We very much hope that all students will attend with a parent, older sibling, or carer.

Short presentations will be made on the following topics.

  • Apprenticeship and Employment Pathways
  • Higher Education and The Application Process
  • Student Finance

We look forward to working with your son/daughter to help prepare them to make a successful transition from Year 13. Should you require any further information about any of the above please contact

A Festival of Remarkable Lives

On 4th July, at the Derngate Theatre, Northampton, staff and pupils of the 62 different AET academies came together for A Festival of Remarkable Lives.

The Festival was a celebration event and the grand finale of a year-long programme called Our Remarkable World in 10 Years Time, launched to mark 10 years of AET and to help bring to life our collective vision of inspiring each and every child to choose a remarkable life.

This was a fun-packed, performance-led, entertaining Festival hosted by CBBC stars Sam and Mark and here you can see a short taster video about the Festival. Thank you to our students who made it such a memorable trip and a special well done to our own Katie Furlong for scooping the Remarkable Arts award for Key Stage 5.
