Cottenham Village College & The Centre School Join Astrea Academy Trust

Two schools in Cottenham have joined Astrea Academy Trust , based in South Yorkshire.

Cottenham Village College and The Centre School are the first two schools in Cambridgeshire to become part of Astrea Academy Trust.

The two schools – a secondary school and special educational needs school – joined Astrea on Thursday (June 1), making Cambridgeshire the northern trust’s second business region.

The schools were the only two schools in the stand-alone Cottenham Academy Trust, which formed in 2011. It has been abandoned to allow the schools to benefit from joining a larger trust.
