The Raedwald Trust is an Alternative Provision Multi-Academy Trust originally created from the merging of two , previously Local Authority managed, pupil referral units: Parkside Academy (incorporating the Lindbergh Campus and the Ipswich Hospital School), and Westbridge Academy.

Founded in May 2016 it has now grown to include a further four provisions: Alderwood, Firstbase, St Christopher’s Academies and Montgomery Road Campus.

Our stated ambition is to create a national centre of excellence in the provision of alternative education across all key stages, providing excellent educational opportunities for those pupils who have been excluded from mainstream education for whatever reason.
