Marleigh Primary Academy has now reached the final stages of its build and the completion is in sight. Watching the academy grow over the last year and seeing it all come together has been an amazing process. Morgan Sindall Construction who are overseeing the build have documented it since the start in June 2021 and produced this fascinating timelapse video:

The Marleigh Primary Academy will open to pupils in September with capacity for up to 420 primary and 52 nursery ages children and is part of Anglian Learning, a multi-academy educational trust.  The school will have a particular teaching focus on STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – reflecting Cambridge’s excellence in these areas. For children ages 3 years old upwards, the nursery will provide a place where they can explore and develop their understanding.

The design of Marleigh Primary Academy has been developed by drawing on research into effective school design taking into account the need to provide a flexible approach to learning. Pupils will be provided with access to outdoor areas including woodland for outdoor learning and extending Forest School approaches.

The new primary school and nursery will be at the heart of the Marleigh community, where 1,300 new homes are under construction.
