About us

The Wensum Trust is a not-for-profit sponsor of primary and secondary education providing continuity of experience from nursery to sixth form. The Trust has the highest aspirations for all children in its academies, regardless of their background and works tirelessly with our partners to help pupils reach their full potential. We believe that education is far broader and deeper than the national curriculum and examination programmes of study.

The Trust is committed to providing high quality CPD for the whole learning community.

The Wensum Trust already has a track record of bringing about rapid and sustained school improvement and is a growing and well respected Trust both locally and regionally.

Our Academies are arranged in three geographical hubs across Norfolk, are free to attend, non-selective and open to all. The hubs are arranged as follows celebrating their unique place and culture within the county and providing the opportunity for children from each of the three hubs to experience a range of activities in a different setting:

• City Hub – Hellesdon and Old Catton
• Rural Hub – Acle and surrounding villages
• Coastal Hub – Wells and Burnham Market

The hubs work closely together so that the children in all our academies can have an outstanding experience which sets them up for the future through:

  • An inspiring and meaningful curriculum and a range of experiences that will develop students for life in the 21st century
  • The development of positive relationships to prepare our young people for learning and life
  • Using our scale and collective experience to develop effective partnerships and services for the benefit of all our communities
  • A clear focus on our Core Strategic Aims in everything that we do

Our children are on a learning journey…….

“In working with young people do not try to call back to where they were and do not call them to where you are as beautiful a place as that may seem to you. You must have the courage to go with them to a place that neither you nor they have ever been before.”

The Wensum Trust Schools will share this journey with each and every child in all our academies.
