The academy is sponsored and supported by Meridian Trust, which was founded at the 'Outstanding' Swavesey Village College, Cambridgeshire.

Meridian Trust exists to provide, support and champion high-quality education at the heart of local communities.

Our House System

The Houses provide crucial support and guidance, and the needs of every student are acknowledged and understood by their tutor and senior tutor. The system enables individual progress to be monitored much more closely and the House is the key focus of the relationship between the academy and families, with siblings joining the same House.
