Cambian Northampton School is an independent specialist provision that provides quality and personalised education for young people ranging from ages 11 to 16 with on-going social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH).


Our well-qualified and experienced staff work continuously to provide positive education experiences that combine high expectations for our students with sensitivity to their individual needs. The school offers a nurturing and caring environment which allows all our young people to thrive and achieve their full potential. We recognise and reward every single achievement and students are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities that enrich their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.


We have taken a broader and more flexible approach to the curriculum so that it is not only tailored to the needs, skills and interests of the learners but also provides a balance of academic, artistic, cultural, vocational and civic elements. We extend learning beyond the confines of the classroom to build essential independent skills, foster teamwork and promote community collaboration through work experience, community work and school trips.


We know that choosing the right educational provision is critical for the success of your child. Rest assured that your child's safety, well-being, social and emotional development along with accessing arange of academic awards and qualifications is at the heart of what we do. Equally, we recognise that our effectiveness as a school is highly dependent on strong collaboration between home and school to support our young people in achieving their full potential.
