Proposed transfer to Ormiston Academies Trust

Please note: the formal consultation period has now closed, but please continue to use this site to find out more about the proposal to transfer Cliff Park Infant and Cliff Park Junior schools to Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT). The transfer is due to take place on 1 December 2018.


Welcome to the consultation website for the proposed transfer of the East Anglia Schools Trust (EAST) academies to Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT).

EAST has been exploring local and national partnerships that might help both Cliff Park Infant and Cliff Park Junior schools to improve. We felt that the best option for both schools was to look at joining a multi-academy trust (MAT) which already has an established and well-respected local and national network.

EAST has decided that the best route forward for Cliff Park Infant and Cliff Park Junior is for the two schools to join Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT). We will continue to have the same values, ethos and drive to look after your children and this is shared by OAT.

We are excited about the opportunity for both schools to begin engaging at a regional and national level. It promises to offer much for all the school community, and we know that students, families, staff, governors and the wider community will be richer for it.
