Ermine Street Church Academy opened in September 2016 and is the first of three new primary schools planned for Alconbury Weald. Its innovative Y-shaped design provides three separate wings for each of the key stages and the double-height vaulted roof assembly hall forms the central core of the building.
The school is designed to create a stimulating and supportive environment where all pupils develop a love of learning.
Ermine Street Church Academy is part of the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust, which has extensive knowledge, experience and expertise in delivering and maintaining high quality teaching and learning.
The Hangar Club – a before and after-school provision, with parents able to book sessions for their children.
