TBAP Cambridge AP Academy

The Academy supports up to 35 secondary learners who have experienced difficulties with their learning and behaviour in mainstream school.The academy takes referrals from a wide variety of Secondary school across Cambridge and the surrounding villages, predominantly focusing on Yrs 9 – 11. Learners are taught in small, well supported groups and follow a broad curriculum of English, Maths, Science, PE, Art, Food Technology, Media and a range of college courses.

'Relationships between staff and learners in the school are impressive and help create an atmosphere of trust. School leaders’ strong understanding of learners’ emotional wellbeing means that learners are making greater progress in terms of attendance and progress that they have in previous schools.'

Dynamic School review Dec 2017

Learners have extra support for literacy and numeracy delivered by a team of learning Support Professionals. Learners also benefit from a weekly enrichment programme which allows them to explore healthy lifestyles and to experience outdoor pursuits and encourages team building. We work closely with families and outside agencies to give learners the skills and resilience they need to be safe and to raise their expectations of themselves as successful citizens.
