About Us

The Staploe Education Trust came into being on 1 December 2012 when Kennett Primary School converted to Academy Status and joined the Soham Village College Academy Trust, which was formed in April 2011.

The Shade Primary School opened as an Academy in 2013. The Weatheralls Primary School joined the Trust in February 2017

The Staploe Education Trust and its partners are committed to the leadership and management of successful and high-achieving schools in our community.  Our schools work in very close partnership and are now known as the Staploe Schools Partnership.
