Corby Technical School

Corby Technical School is where secondary aged students thrive in a vibrant learning environment. We have a strong technical ethos that threads through each strand of a wide-ranging curriculum. Corby Technical School prides itself on ensuring students are equipped with transferrable skills and knowledge that will prepare them for careers in our fast-changing world. We also consider it important to develop well-rounded students who have high aspirations, cultural capital, and a desire to make a positive difference in society.

Students and staff at Corby Technical School have a common purpose: to succeed and achieve, following our central Trust mission - Ambition for All.

We believe this requires us to work collaboratively as a community, to embrace innovation, and to show perseverance when we are faced with challenges. Built to the same standards as the other Brooke Weston Trust schools, our building is a modern learning space with a range of high-quality facilities and a bright, open feel to the architecture. Students who join us will be a part of a close-knit school community and will thrive in an atmosphere where they feel safe, confident and are supported in all aspects of their education.
