Malcolm Arnold Academy

Malcolm Arnold Academy is a school in the heart of Northampton with simple-to-state approach: insisting on impeccable behaviour, a knowledge-based curriculum, guided instructional teaching and meaningful music and sporting experiences.
We are educating for 'life in all its fullness' (John 10.10)
We are educating to 'do good, seek peace and pursue it' (Psalm 34.14)

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.
