The Pursuit of Excellence

North Cambridge Academy is the newest venture for CMAT which opened in September 2013.

North Cambridge Academy is a sponsored Academy by CMAT (Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust) and opened in September 2013.


With a £10 million rebuild project due to be completed by September 2016 our facilities will be amongst the newest and finest in the city.

As well as the strong focus on raising standards we also aim to offer a range of additional experiences and opportunities which recognises the strengths of young people as individuals.


Our vertical tutoring system is the back bone of the academy and brings together pupils from years 7 to 11 in tutor groups which are organized into two Houses: Churchill and Fitzwilliam. Both Houses have a senior tutor, curriculum leaders and staff who understand the needs of every individual pupil and ensure progress at all levels.


We are passionate about extending learning opportunities beyond the school walls and the have formed partnerships with Cambridge University Museums, Business in the Community, Anglia Ruskin University, The Arbury Library and many other local businesses and groups.
