Welcome to the Octagon AP Academy

The Octagon AP Academy joined the TBAP Multi-Academy Trust
as a sponsored AP Academy in April 2014

Octagon AP Academy is a primary and secondary alternative provision (AP) academy situated in Wood
Green, London. Our academy supports up to 68 learners who have experienced difficulties with their
learning and behaviour in mainstream school. We are driven by a fully inclusive philosophy and want to
empower our learners to become the best they can be, so that they can take their place and contribute
successfully in the wider community.

At KS3 our learners follow a curriculum that consists of English, Maths, Sc ience, ICT, PE and Vocational based
subjects and are taught differentiated lessons in small, well supported groups. In addition, learners receive
extra support for literacy and numeracy.

At KS4, learners access a range of GCSE subjects apart from the core subjects of English, Maths and Science,
as well as a varied vocational offer which includes: Hair and Beauty, Food Technology, Design and
Technology etc.

The foundation of our vision is to ensure our learners education is personalised to meet their individual
needs and is designed to give them the necessary skills to access the next phase of their life. Our academic
curriculum is also complemented by an enrichment programme of off site activities for all learners and
on-site therapeutic services which includes, Music Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Counselling etc.
The Octagon AP Academy prides itself on the work that it carries out with parents/carers and outside
agencies to ensure that the academy is a safe and enjoyable place of education where learners are fully
engaged, enthused, motivated and encouraged to have high aspirations. We are particularly successful at
the reintegration of learners into mainstream education. We also work hard to make sure learners move into
further education or employment, post-16.
