Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Olive AP Academy – Suffolk , I am very proud to be the headteacher of an academy where all staff are passionate about ensuring our students have the opportunity to be the best person they possibly can be.

At Olive AP Academy – Suffolk, we are relentless in our belief that every young person deserves the very best education irrespective of background, ability or circumstance.

With an approach based on high expectations, academic rigour, appropriate curriculum and a focus on addressing individual needs, we seek to help students rediscover their love of learning and get themselves back on track.

We are a warm, inclusive and supportive community welcoming students from all backgrounds and abilities. Whilst every student has their own story as to why they have come to us, at Olive AP Academy – Suffolk every student starts with a clean slate and our focus is very much on what they do next. We seek to rebuild their confidence and resilience and give them the tools they need to embark on the next chapter of their lives.

We are very proud of what our students achieve, but we want more from them. We want them all to go onto further education, training or apprenticeships.

If you would like to find out more about our academy, please do not hesitate to contact me via the academy office or email to info.suffolk@oliveacademies.org.uk
