Olive AP Academy – Thurrock

Our alternative provision academy provides a broad curriculum to a diverse group of young people. We moved into our brand new academy building in Tilbury in July 2017. We cater for young people and children who have experienced difficulty in learning for a variety of reasons. We also offer support to students in mainstream schools who are experiencing difficulties and are at risk of exclusion.

Eileen Hinds is our headteacher at Olive AP Academy - Thurrock. She leads an experienced team who support our students to reach their full potential. Please read our Headteacher's Welcome to find out more.
