One Degree Academy

One Degree Academy is an all-through school for those aged 2-19 in Enfield, North London. The school, which opened in 2016, can cater for up to 1,260 pupils and was established in order to address a basic need for more places and to raise educational standards in the local area. The school has four strategic anchors know as the '4 Cs': core knowledge, character attributes, cultural capital and care. As part of the school curriculum there is a 'One Degree Pledge' which states that every year, every student will have the chance to connect with a Russell Group university, engage in regular cultural trips, be part of a volunteering programme and take part in regular mentoring from a top London employer.
