About Us


It is my privilege and pleasure to offer you a very warm welcome to our school website. I am delighted and very proud to have been appointed as the first Head Teacher of The Red Kite Academy! Our school has a richly diverse community in which children with many special needs, languages, cultures and religions learn together in harmony. The Red Kite Academy is a special school situated in Corby, Northamptonshire and is a free school. Places at the school are commissioned by Northamptonshire LA for children with an Education, Health and Care Plan. 

The Red Kite Academy is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The children are already at the heart of every decision we are making to ensure that they will be happy, confident and that the opportunities that we will be providing for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future.

Through our engaging WOW curriculum, we ensure that children foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.

 We look forward to working in partnership with you from the very start; we firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support. Visits are encouraged and welcomed; we would be delighted to show you around our wonderful new school as it develops and I am very proud to be able to share with you the future opportunities and developments that will be available through this website. Should you need more information than is on these pages then please do not hesitate to contact myself head@redkite.school

Once again I really look forward to meeting you and your child!

Head Teacher
