About us

The Diverse Alternative Provision Academy (DAPA) sits at the heart of our established, successful and supportive family of academies. We are committed to providing the very best education underpinned by an ethos of challenge, support, intervention and aspiration – set within a framework of clear boundaries.

Operating on a ‘hub and spoke’ model, with a central team in Hucknall and satellite centres across the region, our core aim is to facilitate effective progression routes between key stages, and into further education or employment, by providing a consistent standard of high quality, alternative provision from key stage 1 to 5.
