The Pursuit of Excellence
North Cambridge Academy is the newest venture for CMAT which opened in September 2013.
With a £10 million rebuild project due to start this year and complete in September 2015, our facilities will be amongst the newest and finest in the city. However, we are not just building a new school we are helping to build the future of every pupil who comes here.
As well as the strong focus on raising standards you would naturally expect, we also aim to offer a range of additional experiences and opportunities which recognise the strengths of young people as individuals.
By introducing our vertical tutoring system, we are creating a structure which brings together pupils from years 7 to 11 in tutor groups. These groups have a senior tutor and curriculum leader who understand the needs of every individual pupil.
Every tutor group is part of one of our three houses: Fitzwilliam, Churchill and Attenborough. We are passionate about extending learning opportunities beyond the school walls and one way in which we are doing this is linking every house to a Cambridge museum as part of an ongoing partnership with Cambridge University.Our Values
