Academy Life

Beyond the Classroom / Pledges

North Cambridge Academy is committed to providing all students with a wide range of additional opportunities and experiences which will develop self-confidence, life skills and leadership experiences and we are very proud of the wide variety of after school clubs and activities that take place outside of the classroom.

We want, and expect, all students to participate in at least one after school club as part of the PLEDGES Programme so that they can benefit from the skills and personal qualities that these clubs help to develop.

Pledges Programme –

We believe in an all-round education where ‘every child develops self-confidence, life-skills and leadership experiences’.

We have developed and invested in a simple but broad set of Academy Pledges that students are expected to complete during the course of their time at the school, at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels:


The Pledges programme will not only benefit your child whilst studying at The North Cambridge Academy through achieving Vivo points through our online reward system, but will benefit them when they come to apply for their continuing studies at College/ Sixth Form. The Trust has successfully created a partnership with post 16 providers, who now acknowledge the achievement of each student at their completed level, which could provide the edge when applying for a place at your child’s first choice further education provider.

Pledges will be recorded in Homework Diaries and monitored by Tutors, who will include them in the termly monitoring meetings that they have with students.
