A warm welcome

Ermine Street Church Academy is the first of three Primary Schools. It sits at the gateway to the new community, and with the building’s outstretched arms, aims to ensure all families have a warm welcome to learning at Alconbury Weald.

School Plaza

The plaza area at the front of the school is a main focus for community events and school events – and connects children and parents safely to play areas in Swynford Park, and carefully crossing the road to the scoot and cycle routes, and play areas along Garland Park.

Supporting children to explore

The school is part of the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust and has a key ethos of supporting children to Explore, Discover and Learn. The school is also home to Alconbury Weald’s first Early Years provision – Jemima House Nursery – and the after school care – The Hangar Club

A solid foundation

The school has classes for every year group and has started to open its Second Form of Entry. The building will extend to a Three Form entry school over the next couple of years.
