Houghton Regis Academy

About Us

The Houghton Regis Academy was opened on 1 September 2012 and is sponsored by the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust, a successful multi-Academy sponsor.

The Academy will grow year on year; what this means for pupils is:

  • From 1 September 2013 the Academy will have pupils in years 6, 7, 8 and 9. All pupils who were in the Academy will move up a year and there will be additional admissions in year 7.
  • From 1 September 2014 the Academy will have pupils in years 7, 8, 9 and 10. Again all pupils who were in the Academy will move up a year with new admissions in year 7.
  • The Academy will then grow a year at a time until 1 September 2017 when it will have pupils in all years from year 7 to year 13.

At the Houghton Regis Academy, we want to raise standards and outcomes for all our pupils and to provide a high quality secondary education for all local children who enrol.

We want our pupils, no matter what their age or ability, to be proud to belong to their Academy, be proud of their achievements and to know we have their best interests at heart.  Whatever our pupils’ backgrounds, we want them to be in the best possible position to move on to a successful life beyond school – whether it is in education, training or employment.

If you need any further information, or if you would like to visit the Academy, please ring our office on 01582 863294.

This Academy is sponsored by the Greenwood Academies Trust which was formed in 2009 and now educates approximately 16,000 pupils across eight local authority areas including Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire, Derby City, Leicester City, Northamptonshire, Peterborough, Lincolnshire and Central Bedfordshire.
