Principal's Welcome

Malcolm Arnold Prep School is a warm and welcoming primary school in Northampton, offering a world-class education for children aged 4-11.

Welcome to Malcolm Arnold Preparatory School (MAPS).  On behalf of our pupils, staff, governors and Trust, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and thank you for visiting our website and learning more about our school.

At MAPS, our aim is to create memorable experiences which enable our pupils to become successful, resilient citizens who flourish in all aspects of life. Being part of the David Ross Education Trust means that our pupils have access to a range of enrichment, sporting opportunities and resources that many schools outside the Trust are unable to offer.  These learning experiences aim to motivate and encourage young people to develop their passions and discover their talents.

Our amazing staff team ensures that learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our knowledge rich curriculum gives pupils the opportunity to explore a range of subjects through quality first teaching and enrichment opportunities.  We have high expectations of our children which is reflected in the pride the children take in their work, appearance and behaviour.

"You shall love your neighbour as yourself"

Love yourself, Love others, Love the world

Love yourself, Love others, Love the world

As a Church of England Academy, within the Peterborough Diocese, our strong Christian ethos and values enable us to promote the spiritual, moral and cultural development of our pupils in an inclusive and invitational way which welcomes and values pupils of all faiths. This supports us to build a strong sense of community, ensuring that our children leave the school as well-rounded individuals and valuable members of society.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to arrange a visit and we look forward to welcoming you to our fabulous school.
