Olive Academies attracts people who care about removing barriers to learning for children and young people. Our alternative provision academies are nurturing, inclusive communities which re-engage students; students who have found the pressures of mainstream school life difficult to manage. We give them the chance to learn in small well-supported groups with a focus on therapeutic approaches and purposeful learning.
From teachers, governors and senior leaders to administrators and support staff, everyone has a role to play in the success of individual academies and the OA network as a whole. We employ around 80 members of staff in out three academies and at the trust’s central office in Brighton.
We offer our staff access to ongoing CPD, leadership training, a supportive staff team, flexible working patterns, part-time positions and access to one-to-one coaching. We provide all members of staff who join Olive Academies with a full induction programme.
Partnerships with charities, schools, education providers and other organisations also help to contribute to the wellbeing of our students and we are always interested in potential connections.

“I heard Mark Vickers, CEO of Olive Academies, speaking at an event. I heard him describe the ethos of OA and his vision of what alternative provision could and should provide children. I liked what he had to say and thought, I want to be part of this. I got in touch with Mark and was so pleased, a year later, to be appointed as an assistant headteacher and SENCo at an OA academy.” Charlotte Wright, Olive AP Academy – Havering
