Wisbech and Fenland Academy : An opportunity to provide a long-term education solution for Wisbech

Our Schools

Our plans have been developed in close discussion with Cambridgeshire County Council, meeting the immediate demand for secondary school places in Wisbech.Responding to the need to create a new school in Wisbech, the Active Learning Trust, a successful education trust already running 21 schools in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, is pleased to confirm its bid to open a brand-new school, providing education for children from four through to 18 years.

Our plans for the new school include:

  • Starting with a Year 7 intake of up to 120 students in September 2021
  • Rolling out year groups growing to 1,050 students in the secondary phase and sixth form

As a Trust, we have a proven track record in opening successful new schools including Littleport and East Cambridgeshire Academy, Highfield Littleport in 2017, The Isle of Ely Primary Academy in 2014 and Chesterton Primary School in 2013. Under our leadership, schools within our Trust have delivered significant impact on standards and outcomes for children in the region, achieving consistent progress in OfSTED ratings and academic results.

Our plans encompass the immediate need for secondary school places in Wisbech..
