City of Peterborough Academy

COPA artists impressions

                                                              An artists impression of how the City of Peterborough Academy could look

Greenwood Academies Trust has been chosen as the preferred partner to run a new secondary school on the former Hereward Community College site in Reeves Way, Peterborough.

The trust was one of five shortlisted education providers selected to bid for the opportunity to run the school.  Greenwood Academies Trust was selected because of its strong history of improving outcomes in challenging schools, its experiences of working with multi-ethnic groups and for its overall vision for the school.

The trust will now work closely with Peterborough City Council to put together a bid to the government to open the school as a Free School from September 2013.

The new school will be co-educational and will cater for up to 850 pupils aged from 11 to 19 years.  It will have a city-wide catchment, a strong community focus and will work closely with post-16 education providers such as Peterborough Regional College and City College Peterborough to ensure young people can access post 16 courses relevant to their learning needs and career aspirations.

A special school for 90 children aged 4-18 years will also operate from the site. The school will cater for statemented children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  The special school will open from September 2012 in existing buildings, whilst a new building is constructed at the site.  The new building will open in September 2013.
