“A Hub on the Hill”

This was the vision for the site overlooking Plymouth Sound, articulated by the then Principal Helen Mathieson when we first met in December 2011.

The school is sited in an area which falls in the lowest quartile of overall deprivation in England. The investment in Marine Academy Plymouth (MAP) is therefore an important catalyst for the regeneration of the local area, and this is a key part of the school’s vision. Historically, the St. Budeaux area of the city has not been well served by new education establishments. In response to this, the academy aims to meet the challenge of multi-generational worklessness in its local community by creating a through-age learning hub to provide a focus and a vehicle for change.
