Welcome to Woolpit Primary Academy
I am proud to welcome you to Woolpit Primary Academy. Our school is a warm and friendly community where we work together to create children that have ambition, display resilience and value the world around them. It is a special place to work and attend.
In 2016 the school became an academy in a small multi academy trust. The school is joined with Rattlesden Primary Academy, Great Barton Primary Academy and Thurston Primary Academy to form the Thedwastre Education Trust. This has enabled us to work closely together to ensure that our pupils can make the most of opportunities offered to them. For more information, please visit www.thedwastreeducationtrust.co.uk
We are also part of the Thurston Partnership, sixteen primary schools and Thurston Community College working together for all our children. Go to Thurston Partnership for more information.
Informal visits to the school are warmly welcomed, by appointment. We look forward to seeing you.
