Manor Drive Academy

      

Thank you for visiting our website. This page provides information about the Free School applications that Arthur Mellows and the Fulbridge Academy are submitting to the Department for Education to build 2 new schools at Paston Reserve; one primary school and one secondary school.  These schools are being built to meet the need for new school places for students from the Paston Reserve development currently being built and also to provide for the predicted shortage of school places across Peterborough in the future. Both schools will be members of the Four Cs Academy Trust which is a new Multi-Academy Trust being formed by Arthur Mellows (secondary) in partnership with the Fulbridge Academy (primary)

The new primary school, called Manor Drive Academy (primary phase) is due to open in September 2019 with a nursery and 2 reception classes.  Further information about this school can be found on the Fulbridge Academy website

The new secondary school, called Manor Drive Academy (secondary phase) is due to open in September 2019 with Year 7 only.  Initially it will have 5 forms of entry, rising to 8 forms of entry in subsequent years.  It will have a Sixth Form opening in 2024. The school will share a lot in common with Arthur Mellows; its values, its standards and its aspirations for learning and student’s achievement.

We are still at an early stage in our design and planning but we will update this webpage with additional information as it becomes available.  Please find below links to relevant policies and documentation.
