Message from our Chair

Welcome to the Fenland and East Cambridgeshire Opportunity Area website.

Our vision is for every child and young person in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire to have access to the very best education which will equip them with the knowledge, skills and expertise to enable them to pursue a wide range of career choices and career routes. Hence, our programme is all about support and change. It is about raising aspirations and overcoming barriers to learning, and about believing that all children can succeed regardless of background and social context.

As I write this, we are in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and very mindful of the educational and mental health implications for the children, young people and staff in our schools at the current time. What I am convinced about is that the Opportunity Area programme will survive the challenges and not be deflected from its vision to transform the life chances of the children and young people who live and learn in Fenland and East Cambridgeshire.

Please do use the website to find out more about the range of projects on offer in the Opportunity Area and how to contact us for more information.
