About Cambridge AP Academy
TBAP Cambridge AP Academy supports up to 38 Secondary learners who have experienced difficulties with their learning and behaviour in mainstream school. The Academy takes referrals from a wide variety of secondary schools across Cambridge and the surrounding villages, predominantly focusing on Years 9-11.
Learners are taught in small well-supported groups and follow a broad curriculum of English, Maths, Science, ICT, PE, Art and Food Technology. College placements in KS4 are also encouraged and further vocational opportunities take place on site. Learners receive extra support for Literacy and Numeracy delivered by a team of Learning Support Professionals.
Learners also benefit from a weekly enrichment programme, which helps them to explore a healthy lifestyle, to experience outdoor pursuits and to encourage team-building. We work closely with families and outside agencies to give learners the skills and resilience they need to be safe, to raise their expectations of themselves as successful citizens, and to encourage them to be life-long learners.
In their visit, Challenge Partners (June 2016) cited ‘positive and purposeful leadership and that the school works hard to develop and secure a range of services needed by learners and their families. Staff, learners and parents are able to confidently commit to the school improvement agenda.’
