Case Study - North Cambridge Academy | Award Nomination 2016

Case Study:

Sam Fox, Vice Principal
North Cambridge Academy
 
Practice:
Sam was part of a leadership team which inherited the 8th worst performing school in England 2013. It had a track record of under-performance and was perceived as failing local children from severely disadvantaged backgrounds. In three years Sam has revolutionised the culture in the school. He was instrumental in creating a curriculum for all, building a culture of aspiration amongst pupils and staff and challenging under-performance across all subjects. He finds solutions, translates words into actions and is unrelenting in his drive to ensure every pupil achieves beyond expectations.
 
Impact:
Progress of pupils across all subjects has risen year on year. Attainment is now exceeding national averages in many subjects. First choice applications for places at North Cambridge have risen by 85% because local perceptions have changed regarding the quality of teaching and learning. The curriculum is broad, balanced and serves all learners. Staff talk about exceeding expectations for their pupils and the aspiration of the children to want to do better. Essentially, because of his sustained application of ‘finding a way’ Sam has created a solution-focused school.
