Our Trust story

We are a Multi Academy Trust formed of seven primary schools and one junior school in the Ipswich and Stowmarket areas of Suffolk. We are responsible for approximately 3,000 pupils and our aim is to harness the professional strengths within our schools to provide sustainable improvement in the standards and effectiveness of teaching and learning for all pupils. 

On the 1st January 2019, our Trust was founded by Broke Hall Community Primary and Springfield Junior School. In 2020, we expanded and were joined by five local schools: Abbot’s Hall, Chilton and Combs Ford Community Primaries in Stowmarket; Bosmere Community Primary in Needham Market and Freeman Community Primary in Stowupland. In September 2021, we were delighted to welcome Whitehouse Community Primary School from Ipswich to the Trust.

We are proud to be linked with a partnership of schools in Suffolk who have established EAST SCITT, an accredited Initial Teacher Training (ITT) course offering school-based training and awarding Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Click here for more details.

This is in collaboration with the University of Buckingham who offer the additional option to study for a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with Masters' credits, alongside QTS. Click here for more details
