About Houlton School

Houlton School is the Transforming Lives Educational Trust’s brand-new, 11-18 flagship secondary academy; we open our doors to Year 7 students for the first time in September 2021. We are situated on the new Houlton development on the eastern edge of Rugby, occupying the historic site and Grade II listed buildings of the former Rugby Radio Station – part of Rugby’s heritage since the 1920s.

At Houlton School children can expect to receive a world class education delivered by exceptional teachers within brand new, state-of-the-art facilities.

A member of TLET, Houlton School has been established by the same team as our other highly successful, oversubscribed academy, Ashlawn School. Therefore, you can be assured that pupils’ education is in the best possible hands with us. We look forward to expanding our Houlton family over the coming years.

About the Trust

Houlton School is proud to be part of the Transforming Lives Educational Trust.

The Transforming Lives Educational Trust was established in 2016 through a partnership between high-performing primary and secondary academies in Rugby, Warwickshire. Since then, the Trust has grown with the addition of primary and secondary academies, including a secondary free school and a successful Teaching Alliance.

The Transforming Lives Educational Trust believes in the transformative power of learning and its singular ability to broaden horizons, deepen perspectives and extend potential. TLET wants its family of academies to provide a springboard for children, young people and staff so that they become exemplary citizens who strive to stretch their potential and become transformers in a diverse and ever-changing world.

The Trust wants to add value to its academies and the communities they serve – schools should be better served being part of the Transforming Lives family than not. It’s a simple but vital measure for all that the Trust does and how it adapts in the pursuit of its vision of “Learning Today for the World of Tomorrow”.
