Olive Academies is excited to welcome two new alternative provision academies in Cambridgeshire into our multi-academy trust.
Olive AP Academy – Cambridge and Olive AP Academy – Nene Valley support young people aged between 11 and 16 who have been excluded or are at risk of exclusion from mainstream schools. Both the new academies (previously known as TBAP Octavia and TBAP Cambridge) transferred to Olive Academies on 1 May 2021.
Mark Vickers, Chief Executive, Olive Academies said, “I’d like to offer my thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to make sure staff and students have been well supported during the recent transition process. At Olive Academies we recognise that the pioneering work we do with young people is a precious opportunity to re-engage them in learning and help them to experience success. Everyone at Olive Academies is looking forward to working with our students, their families, our colleagues and partners in Cambridgeshire, as we welcome them all into the Olive Academies family.”
Our growing network of alternative provision academies work together and share their expertise to give students the best support and educational experience possible. Olive Academies’ mission is to provide all our students with nurturing and inspiring learning opportunities which will re-engage them in education – and transform their lives.
Olive AP Academy – Nene Valley is based in Wisbech and currently supports 35 young people. Olive AP Academy – Cambridge has up to 35 young people from across the city and surrounding villages on roll at the academy. Olive Academies looks forward to developing the curriculum and the learning opportunities on offer to all students at both academies over the coming year.
Following a special INSET day to allow for staff training, both academies will open their doors to students on Wednesday 5 May.
Our five academies in Havering, Thurrock, Cambridge, Nene Valley and Suffolk give children and young people the chance to learn in small well-supported groups with a focus on therapeutic approaches and purposeful learning.
