About our School

The First University Training School for Primary in the UK

Welcome to our school.  We hope you enjoy reading about our work.

A University Training School

There are three key features of our University Training School: the first is to be a brilliant primary school, inclusive, ambitious for all and innovative in practice. The second is to work with the Faculty of Education, and others, in Initial Teacher Education.  We support new teachers into the profession through placements that we offer in our school.  The third, is to be research-informed and research-generating. Even in our early stages, we have developed high quality professional development courses, rooted in academic research, inspired by bringing theory, research and practice together.  We seek opportunities to develop our thinking, in partnership with others, so that together we develop research-informed practice that raises standards and contributes positively to society.  As such, we are aligned with the vision and values of our sole Trust member, Cambridge University.

The School

The school opened in September 2015. In 2021-22 we will be a three-forms of entry primary school educating over 700 children.  The school will also have a Nursery for 78 children (rising four-year-old children).
