Malcolm Arnold Academy

Malcolm Arnold Academy is a mixed-gender Academy in Northampton, England, for pupils aged 11 – 18.

Principal's Welcome

Mrs M Morris

Our corridors ring with the sound of subject-expert teachers who love what they teach and give our students a strong and broad curriculum. To me personally, teaching is king; so even though I am busy as a Principal, I have my own class of lovely Year 11 who are the most important part of my day.

Our expectations are high, really high actually; of both our students and ourselves. Combined with a warm and purposeful atmosphere, it is no wonder so many people comment on the ‘lovely feel’ at MAA. We are really proud of that!

We bring a world of possibility to our students through an extensive Music, Sport and Enrichment program that is for every child, not just a privileged few.
