Welcome to The Cambridge AP Academy

TBAP Cambridge AP 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 schools across Cambridge and the surrounding villages, predominantly focussing on Years 9-11. Learners are taught in small groups and follow a core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, Food Technology and PE. All learners also follow a CIAG programme from Y9 to Y11. At KS3, the core curriculum is supported by an Enrichment programme which aims to develop learners' social skills, resilience and love of learning in different settings. All KS4 learners have a weekly timetable of work experience to help them prepare and make informed choices about their future pathways. Learners who are struggling to engage are supported with a therapeutic programme which includes home tuition. 

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 explore a healthy lifestyle and to experience outdoor pursuits and promote 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.

'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.'
