I am very privileged to be the Principal of the North Cambridge Academy and I believe that we are on a very exciting journey. We have secured good progress in the four years of North Cambridge Academy and have undergone transformational change to the pastoral system and curriculum. Indeed, the outcomes for pupils have been transformed with regard to achievement and progress.
We have moved into a brand new building, secured a ‘Good’ Ofsted, with ‘Outstanding’ leadership and management and realised partnerships with local businesses and sporting organisations, which include a new Cambridge Gymnastics center in partnership with Cambridge Gymnastics Academy, Judo Dojo in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University and four new multi weather flood light tennis courts, in partnership with Cambridge Tennis Academy.
There are a number of distinctive features of North Cambridge Academy :
- Our partnership with the ‘Outstanding’ Swavesey Village College (SVC) and this manifests itself in staff working across both schools. Indeed, we work closely with all other CMAT schools (insert link to CMAT website)
- Our five values’ statements underpinned by an uncompromising focus upon every child
- Our commitment to our local community, reflecting the ‘Village College’ ethos and 364 day school
- Our emphasis upon sport and outdoor pursuits.
The vision of the Academy is clear: ‘North Cambridge Academy will be a school which operates 364 days a year offering learning opportunities in the academic, cultural and sporting arenas. It is and will continue to be and institution where every child is known and valued and where excellence and ambition is the focus. The vision is supported by the ethos and values of the Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), which Ofsted described as: ‘an absolute belief that every child matters’.
The five core values of North Cambridge Academy and all CMAT Academies are:
The pursuit of excellence
Encouraging individual achievement
Providing a high quality learning environment
Extending the boundaries of learning
I am confident that we can demonstrate to you we are serious in our commitment to the young people of this Academy and the North Cambridge community.
