Olive Ap Academy

2022 Project with Olive AP Academy

Supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Red Hill Trust  
(January 2022)

Olive AP Academy is an alternative provision for pupils aged 11-16 with a centre in Cambridge that supports up to 35 secondary learners. The young people have experienced difficulties with their learning and behaviour in mainstream school and have been permanently excluded from mainstream education.

We worked with Year 11 pupils, in their last year of secondary education, HighRise Theatre  and film maker Jas Pitt. It transpired that there was an interest in music and considerable talent across the cohort of young people. The young people they wanted to make a music video.

You can view the music video they created by clicking the button below and a documentary about making it here.
