Opening a new school is a momentous step in the life of a community, as a trust and community, we have the immense responsibility to create an institution that will go on to shape the lives and experiences of future generations within Godmancester. At Cambridgeshire Educational Trust we do not take that responsibility lightly and we have reflected on our collective experience as educationalists to ensure that Godmanchester Secondary Academy is a success from day one. In the coming months and years we will be working with all sectors of the community to ensure the school grows from the heart of the town and is a resource not just for the young people who go there every day but for all members of the community.

The trust’s founding school Chesterton Community College, is an Outstanding school and currently 16th out of 6500 non-selective state schools in the country. The strength of its ethos ensures that students from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences genuinely work and live together as a community, caring for one another and relishing the challenge of academic excellence. We achieve outstanding results for our students, ensuring progress which is significantly beyond national expectations and this is achieved through our focus on the individual child. We will draw upon our experience with Chesterton Community College to ensure Godmanchester Secondary Academy enjoys the same vibrancy and success.

On this website you will find information about: who we are as a trust, plans for the school and how to get involved. We know the prospect of a new school will raise thoughts and questions. We’ve tried to answer as many questions as possible in our FAQ section but if you have another question, would like to share your views with us or arrange to talk to us in person don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via the contact page.

I look forward to meeting you in person in the coming months.

Lucy Scott
