About us

We are situated in Peterborough, one of the UK’s fastest-growing cities, and as part of the Greenwood Academies Trust (GAT), we are transforming the life chances of our pupils by ensuring that every child can succeed, despite the challenges they may face.

We ensure that staff are highly motivated and committed to achieving the highest standards. Our £23 million state-of-the-art building boasts facilities that are arguably some of the best in the county and include fully equipped specialist rooms, a dance studio, theatre and high-tech ICT equipment.

We are committed to supporting pupils and staff alike. Providing pupils with the highest quality education is of the utmost importance but we recognise that in order to achieve this, teachers and staff must be properly supported with strong leadership, a climate of trust, research and innovation, and ongoing CPD opportunities.

The Trust provides centralised services and support to enable staff to focus on teaching. Being part of the Trust means that we are able to share specialist best practice and work collaboratively with colleagues in other academies. As a GAT employee, you will receive excellent opportunities for career progression and access to bespoke CPD from our Learning Alliance to enhance your professional growth.
