Welcome to Ingoldsby Academy

"Providing high quality care, guidance and support that makes pupils feel exceptionally safe."


I would like to offer you a warm welcome to Ingoldby Academy!

We are exceptionally proud to be a small school that is small enough to nurture, yet big enough to inspire our pupils to aim high and grasp every opportunity with both hands.

As part of the David Ross Education Trust, an enriched curriculum that develops the whole child underpins our approach to education.

We pride ourselves on our approachability.  Our PTFA is hands on and very involved in school life.  We will go above and beyond to help our families and children.

100% of our pupils have passed the phonics screen for Year 1 for the past three years.  This is down to our robust delivery of Read Write Inc.

Although we are a small rural school, we are far from isolated.  Being part of a trust with 34 schools enables us to share best practice and work with both small and large schools around the country.  We share the trust’s ambition to provide a world class education for all of our pupils. This means that excellent staff training is a priority for our amazing team.

In September 2017, we received a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted and since then have continued to grow and leap from strength to strength.

This year there has been a real buzz in school.  Working with the Voices Foundation, all staff and children have been inspired to find their voice and sing!   Adam, our professional dance teacher, works with all pupils every week to develop confidence, coordination and creativity.  Over 50% of our pupils from Year 1-6 attended dance club this year then performed on stage at the Corby Cube with 13 other schools.

Our outdoor classroom encourages staff and pupils alike to get outside and learn in our beautiful surroundings.

If you would like more information then please get in touch.  I would be happy to welcome you to the school and show you around.
