About us

Head of Academy's welcome

Welcome to Olive AP Academy - Nene Valley

We believe that our curriculum and the wider experiences we provide at Olive AP Academy - Nene Valley are invaluable to our students' progress and development.

As an alternative provision academy, we are able to provide a personalised approach that best meets the needs of each and every student.

A child whose behaviour pushes you away is a child who needs connection before anything else.

We are proud that our staff endeavour to get to know and understand all of our students and their families. This allows us to know that each student is fully supported and ready for the next stage of their lives when they leave us at the end of Year 11.

We help our students feel that they are valued and belong, enabling them to improve their social, emotional and academic skills. Our students have the ability to succeed and are fully supported by our passionate and high-quality staff team.

If the opportunity doesn’t exist for them, create it.

We believe in the Olive Way and our core values are:

Ambition : All challenges can be overcome and education is an important lifelong journey.

Reflection: Learning from experiences and developing a capacity to improve further.

Determination: Not giving up on those who have not experienced success.

Conviction: Everyone has the capacity to reach their potential.

We work in partnership with external agencies, local schools and other academies within the trust to ensure our students and their families can access support whenever they need it.
