Welcome to the Cartesians Academy
The Academy Background: An amazing academy of excellence!
In 2007 about 25% of young people killed in London were from British Congolese families. The Camden Report of 2010/ 2011 highlighted that these children achieved poor GCSE and A-level grades in Maths, English, Culture and had reduced accessibility to sports, outings, etc. In 2023 Arts and Science arcaded up to our curricula. As parents, anxious to boost our children, we came together and decided to create this school for the well-being and empowering of our children and put in place parenting skills. The Cartesians Academy is a school of volunteers working together to help the young people at risk, parents, our community, and society to go forward.

Due to the pandemic we have had to halt a number of our services which require us to be face-to-face with our students.
But the good news is that ALL shall resume upon the easing of learners to decide whenever. Mentoring health wellbeing in the community.
Young people Th
The Cartesians Academy is dedicated to hearing the voices of our young people, and so last year we asked them what activity they would like to be introduced into our weekly courses.
Before the pandemic, our young people spoke, and opted to introduce Judo into our weekly courses for their physical, emotional and psychological well being.
Granting their wishes, we have decided to make contact with the British Judo Council (BJC) in order to provide the correct support for our students in this new and exciting practice!
We begun our Judo course for a brief period at the beginning of 2020 but halted teachings due to the pandemic.
Other projects on parents over Covi-19 and other issues related are being undertaken now.
The Cartesians Academy is determined to come together with parents and establish a narrative that is in keeping with our values of progress, success and strength in unity.
We will work as a cohesive unit, striving to create a fun, but stable and optimal learning atmosphere for our most important clients, the students.
But the job does not stop there! You can support us in so many ways!
