Marine Academy Plymouth will raise educational achievement to the very highest levels, and is dedicated to creating a sustainable learning environment, full of opportunities for all. Specifically, it will increase the number of students leaving with five or more high grade GCSEs (including English and Maths) within three academic years, and it will offer opportunities for many groups in the community. By working together with local strategic partners, Marine Academy Plymouth has created a learning strategy that will halve the number of young people not in education employment or training (NEETs) by 2012.
The combined expertise of University, College and Local Authority will ensure a high level of student engagement, using both academic and vocational learning to take full advantage of each of the Sponsors’ strengths, their specialist lecturers and their extensive resources. In accordance with the shared ambition to create ‘a citywide campus’, all Sponsors will take a full and active role within the 14-19 partnership.
Marine Academy Plymouth is working with partners to position the Academy as a place of innovation and development, embracing sustainable achievement coupled with work placements, apprenticeships and higher education that will improve personal futures and Plymouth's prosperity.
