East Anglia Schools Trust was incorporated on 25th February 2016; its precursor Cliff Park Schools Trust Ltd., was formed ahead of the conversion to Academy status of Cliff Park Infant and Cliff Park Junior school on 1st April 2013. The Infant school sponsor the Junior school under the governance of the Multi-Academy Trust.
Following consultations with parents, carers, staff, governors and the local community, we are pleased to announce that both Cliff Park Infant and Cliff Park Junior Schools will officially join the Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) family network on 1 December 2018, becoming Ormiston Cliff Park Infant Academy and Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academy.
We strongly believe that joining the Trust is in the best interests of the whole of EAST, the schools and the wider community. Being a part of the OAT network will provide new and unprecedented opportunities for our schools, including enrichment and learning opportunities for our pupils and development opportunities for our staff.
Retaining our own unique identities whilst becoming part of OAT, our schools will continue to work closely with its local cluster primary schools and build positive community links, as well as working in collaboration with the Trust’s 37 academies and more specifically its five primary academies in the coming months.
Thank you again for your continued support throughout this process and hope you will join us in feeling very positive about this exciting new chapter for Ormiston Cliff Park Infant and Ormiston Cliff Park Junior Academies. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school offices, as we’d be delighted to discuss this further with you, and for more information about OAT, please visit their website - www.ormistonacademiestrust.co.uk
