About us

Octavia AP Academy supports up to 35 secondary learners who have experienced difficulties with their learning and behaviour in mainstream school. We take referrals from a wide variety of secondary schools across Fenland, Cambridgeshire and focus predominately on years 10 – 11. Learners are taught in small, well supported groups and follow a broad curriculum of English, Maths, Science, ICT, PE, SMSC and a range of Vocational and GCSE Option courses.


Learners receive additional support for literacy and numeracy which is delivered by a team of experienced Learning Support Professionals. To further enhance this work we run a range of extracurricular activities that can be accessed by all learners covering a wide range of learner interests.
