NPAT schools work closely with a number of strategic education partners who all bring added value to the curriculum across our schools. These include the following:
Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) - Lings Primary School is one of only three RSC Showcase Schools in the country, and as such demonstrates exemplary practice on how to use Shakespeare as a stimulus for learning. ALL NPAT schools are associate RSC showcase schools. Lings Primary lead the Northampton Creative Hub which leads whole school Shakespeare projects in 15 schools, and has included projects on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest and Hamlet.
Microsoft in Education - Simon de Senlis Primary is a global showcase school and all NPAT schools are 'associate showcase' schools. This means that all NPAT schools benefit from the exemplary practice demonstrated by Simon de Senlis, which includes the development of Microsoft Innovator Education Experts (lead staff members who lead on innovation using technology), pupil digital leaders and the development of a trust-wide digital strategy.
Create Development – Lings Primary School is also a Create Development Lead School, with all NPAT schools working in conjunction to provide outstanding learning and teaching in sport, PE and gymnastics.
