Welcome to Sponne School
I am delighted to welcome you to Sponne School…
Sponne School exists for its students. We believe our role is to inspire students to achieve their best across a range of learning and extra-curricular opportunities.
We have an engaging learning environment that challenges all our students to make outstanding progress and a range of networks exist within the school to identify needs and personalise the learning experience we offer.
At Sponne, we strive to provide an engaging and reflective school culture based upon five key values and skills; achievement, leadership, collaboration, learning and social responsibility. Each of these contributes to our ethos of 'Inspiring Achievement'.
Sponne is a popular and first choice school locally. Our latest Ofsted inspection in October 2012 judged Sponne to be an Outstanding School. The inspection team also found student achievement, the quality of teaching and leadership and management to be outstanding. We were delighted with the outcome and the report can be found on our website. However, we have not been complacent and we continue to work on improving the wellbeing of our students whilst ensuring that the progress of their learning is maintained.
We were particularly pleased to receive our Progress 8 score for the summer 2018 GCSE results of +0.3 which shows that every grade the students achieved was on average a third of a grade higher than national expectations; the students did incredibly well and I am very pleased for them.
If you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact us.

A Level Examination Results 2019
Students and staff at Sponne School in Towcester are celebrating another excellent set of A Level results this year with many individuals achieving outstanding grades. Despite new specifications and a return to the two year A Level programme, results have remained very similar to previous years and most students continue to achieve the highest grades available. Just under 50% of students gained the very highest A*-B grades with almost all students passing. Students did particularly well with the very highest grades of A* and A grade with more than a third of all students achieving at least one of these.
Amongst the many delighted students today were two who achieved A*’s in all 3 of their subjects, Olivia Adams, who will be studying Biomedical Sciences at Oxford University and Ellie Massey who will be studying the same subject at Durham University in the new academic year. Tim Fung achieved 1 A* and 3A’s, while Issy Grant gained 2 A*’s and 1 A grade. George Coombs, Will Ferreira Dyke and Lauren Flower all achieved an A* alongside other high grades whilst Rhiannon Barnby, Carl Davidson, Beth Dolman, Tom Heron, Jess Hornsey, Becky Jenkins, Jared Kent, Alfie Long and Annabel Purdy all achieved multiple A grades. Many other students gained at least 1 A grade in their set of results.
Headteacher Mr Iain Massey said: “We are really proud of our students who have done so well in gaining these excellent results. It is reassuring that the grades reflect the hard work that students put in and the outstanding teaching and support provided by the staff at Sponne School. Well done to all our students, including those who have secured their first choice university places.”
Miss Victoria Austin, Head of Sixth Form from Sponne, said: “I am always amazed by the high standards our students achieve and want to congratulate them on their excellent results. I am so pleased for them and wish them all the best in the future”.
