Orwell Multi Academy Trust

We are delighted to be a part of the Orwell Multi Academy Trust, which

was incorporated on 1st April 2017.


The founding schools were Halifax Primary School, Handford Hall Primary School, The Willows Primary School and Springfield Infant School and Nursery. Since then two more schools have joined the trust. Brooklands Primary School and Grange Primary School in Felixstowe.


Orwell Multi Academy Trust is founded on the belief that collaboration unlocks the potential to create excellent school communities where learning is unstoppable and aspirations have no limit. 


The ethos of Orwell Multi Academy Trust is founded on clear values centred on inclusivity and integrity. We believe that all children have the right to an excellent education, no matter what their needs. We aspire to ensure that every child in an Orwell Multi Academy Trust school has an inspirational learning journey, and that they leave us well prepared for the next stage in their academic career, with a passion for lifelong learning. We know that by working together we can have a positive impact on standards in education across Ipswich and the wider area.
