Olive Academies provides outstanding opportunities for young people who have been unable to succeed in their current educational setting and supports their return to mainstream school by working with both the young person and staff to enable a positive transition. Olive Academies also works within mainstream schools to provide additional support and input for young people struggling to engage with education.
In addition to the opportunities we are able to give to our young people, all of our staff are valued as professionals. We believe in investing in them to ensure that they develop as inspirational educational role models. We strive to achieve excellence through all that we do.
To achieve our vision, we aim to create successful academies and alternative provision that give young people from all backgrounds the opportunity to succeed, build on their strengths and share their skills to improve their chances of success. The values that underpin our work are:
Conviction: Everyone has the capacity to reach their potential.
Determination: Not giving up on those who have not experienced success.
Ambition: All challenges can be overcome and education is an important lifelong journey.
Reflection: Learning from experiences and developing a capacity to improve further.
