Welcome to Kettering Buccleuch Academy
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
Kettering Buccleuch Academy aims to provide an excellent education to children and young people in Kettering and the wider local area. We seek to improve the life chances of all the children and young people we serve and make it our mission to bring out 'the best in everyone' - students, staff, parents and the community which we serve.
Our name reflects our strong links with the Duke of Buccleuch, whose family connection with Kettering stretches back for almost 500 years and remains very much alive today. We are delighted to be supported by the Duke’s estate and benefit from its experience in promoting education in this area.
The Duke's coat of arms was the initial inspiration for the names of our four Houses; Braveheart, Griffin, Phoenix and Viking. Our House System is central to everything that we do here at the academy and we are very proud of the distinct ethos that it provides. Kettering Buccleuch Academy is a school that is not afraid to enjoy itself whilst maintaining a clear focus on educational excellence.
Please come along and visit us to experience our unique atmosphere, community and environment for yourself. We would very much like to meet you and your family and invite you to join our family and become a special part of our bright future. Tours of the academy can be arranged at any time throughout the year for parents who are hoping to be able to secure a place for their child. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to organise a date and time that is convenient for you.
