About The Fen Rivers Academy
The Fen Rivers Academy provides a safe, nurturing environment for 5-16 year old students who have been unable to sustain a place in mainstream education. By prioritising academic achievement and introducing behaviour interventions and therapeutic support where necessary, we enable them to re-integrate at the same key stage as their peers and go on to access opportunities in employment and further education.
The Catch22 Multi Academies Trust is the vehicle for our sponsorship of an expanding number of academies focusing on learners who can benefit from small, supportive alternative education provision.
