MCPA Opportunities

learning at the academy

At MCPA we have an innovative curriculum which seeks to develop the ‘whole-child’.


Children are supported and challenged to develop deep knowledge and a broad range of skills in a variety of subjects, including communication and values.


Children are also afforded a wide range of ‘MCPA opportunities’ which take their learning beyond the classroom.


The excellent teaching team includes specialists in the arts, PE, computing, languages, EAL, SEND and therapeutic support who work together to ensure that every child achieves well in all areas of the curriculum.
