Located on the Eastern district of Northampton, Blackthorn is a two form entry primary school with a nursery. Our school is on a journey of improvement, driven by a passion to provide excellence for the children in our community. The children at Blackthorn are polite, respectful and keen to learn.

Our team of dedicated staff believe that children achieve their best in a safe, secure and happy school community and we work hard to make sure this is the case for our learners every day. We strongly believe that good relationships between people in our school community are essential in securing success for our children.

We are proud to have recently joined Northampton Primary Academy Trust (NPAT) and look forward to broadening the opportunities and experiences for our children through working closely with the Trust.

We have a big focus on outdoor learning and like to make use of our extensive grounds and our two Forest School sites whenever we can, come rain or shine. We teach our children to have a growth mindset and have high aspirations for them all. Our school motto is ‘Reach for the Stars’.
