Ingoldsby Academy

Founded in 1877, Ingoldsby is a mixed Primary School, for children from 4 to 11 years old with a nursery facility on site at the school, taking children from their third birthday.


We are lucky to have an excellent PE programme developed by our own specialists within the trust.

Expert coaches visit the school to inspire children to aim high and follow their dreams. 

Recently, Sue Smith, an England women’s footballer visited.  Our very own sports-mad PE lead, Mrs Bland, is still buzzing!  Key stage 2 children have the opportunity to attend the DRET summer cup; the UK’s biggest sports day.  We offer a range of free sports clubs after school.

We are a dancing school.  In January 2018 we committed to every class working with a dance coach, every week.  Children work on sequencing, expression, self-confidence and movement.  We join the DRET Dance Festival at Corby to celebrate the children’s work in summer.

We have our very own dance teacher, Adam Slepowronski, who works with all of our pupils, every week.

We are so proud of our Choirs!  We have committed to every child, singing every day.  We work in partnership with the Voices Foundation to provide high-quality music provision throughout the school.
