We provide outstanding education and intervention through our Alternative Provision (AP) Academies, Special Academies and outreach teams who work hard to ensure that every learner reaches their full potential. Our core values of Resilience, Compassion and Innovation are central to our work. As a DfE-approved academy sponsor the TBAP Trust sponsors PRUs and Special Schools to become AP Academies. We also have the capacity to support converter AP Academies and new Free Schools wishing to join the TBAP Trust. TBAP has proven to be highly successful at supporting the most vulnerable learners in many ways. We fervently believe in providing support to young people throughout their lives and have established a post-16 offer and a rural therapeutic residence in addition to our existing educational services to meet all needs.
