Education Campus planned for heart of Alconbury Weald


Urban&Civic is working with Morgan Sindall and the County Council to deliver the Education Campus, at the heart of Alconbury Weald.

The Campus will deliver a sixth form, special school provision and an 8FE secondary school along with ancillary features such as sports pitches.

The buildings, which will reflect the high standards of quality and sustainability required by the development’s design codes, will form an important landmark, and provide an inspiring place for all those with a passion for learning to flourish.

The secondary school, Alconbury Weald Church Academy, will be run by The Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT). Chief Executive Adrian Ball, said: “Our aim is to bring together the Trust’s educational vision, the building’s state-of-the-art facilities and our strong local partnerships to create a high-quality learning environment for our pupils…to realise their ambitions.”

Spring Common Academy Trust will run the new special school, Prestley Wood Academy, which will serve children and young people aged 3 to 19. It will include a purpose-built centre for autism as well as a specialist centre for young adults with profound and complex learning difficulties and medical needs.

Working with the design and build team, we are all committed to creating an amazing learning and caring environment for some really special children, many of whom have difficult challenges to cope with, and also to support their families.”
