Welcome to The Cottenham Academy Trust

Welcome to the Cottenham Academy Trust website. I hope that you find everything you are looking for but please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to know more about our trust or our schools.

The Trust came into being in September 2011 when Cottenham Village College and the Centre School became academies. The schools, which are co-located, had been federated under one governing body since the establishment of the Centre School in 2008.

In January 2012, Steve Ellison became CEO/ Executive Headteacher and headteacher of the village college. In September 2015, his role changed to reflect a significant restructuring of the governance and senior leadership of the trust. Under the leadership of Anne Moller, governance was changed to enable the trust to operate more effectively and efficiently. There is now a Board of Trustees and local governing bodies (LGBs) for each school. Committees dealing with the business aspects of the trust report into the Board.
