About The Wensum Trust

The Wensum Trust is a not-for-profit education Trust with 11 non-selective, free to attend, schools arranged into three geographical hubs across Norfolk. It provides a complete education journey from early years to sixteen plus, creating seamless transitions and delivering an ongoing commitment to providing rich, diverse experiences which enable every child to develop, flourish and reach their full potential.

The Wensum Trust currently has 11 schools situated across Norfolk, ranging from nursery through to sixth form, enabling the Trust to support children and their parents and carers at every stage of the education journey.

Since it was first founded, in 2011, The Wensum Trust has demonstrated a successful track record in bringing about rapid and sustained improvements for the schools that have joined the Trust. Children achieve well in all of our schools. Built on the foundations of high-quality teaching, learning and assessment, it features two Ofsted 'outstanding' rated schools, seven 'good' rated schools and has been chosen by the Department for Education (DfE) to lead one of only 34 English Hubs nationwide. The Wensum English Hub, led from Heather Avenue Infant School, supports all primary schools across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire with excellent phonics and early language teaching. 

The schools within the Wensum Trust are arranged into three geographical hubs:

  • The City Hub - serving Norwich and the wider area
  • The Rural Hub - serving Acle and surrounding villages
  • The Coastal Hub - serving Burnham Market, Wells-next-the-Sea and the North Norfolk coast. 

Collectively, all schools that are part of The Wensum Trust share the ethos that education is far broader and deeper than just the national curriculum and examination programmes of study. The Trust has high aspirations for all children, regardless of their background. In recent years, our Trust has begun undertaking a major shift away from a behaviourist model to a relational approach, where positive relationships are key and behaviour is seen as a form of communication. All three hubs work in partnership to use their shared knowledge, facilities and community settings to provide inspiring and meaningful curriculums and pupil experiences. The desire is to give every child the opportunity to discover what they enjoy and where they excel, and to develop engaged and happy children by going beyond a fixed academic focus.

To increase the breadth of diverse experiences available, The Wensum Trust has also built partnerships within the local community. These strategic partnerships, which are often unique to The Wensum Trust academies, include:
