The Icknield Primary School

Thrive and achieve together!

Anglian Learning

Anglian Learning is a highly successful charitable trust formed by academies who recognise the huge potential and benefits of coming together to form one larger group of schools.  Our members share the firm belief that successful learning communities are underpinned by ambitious vision, trust and strong inspirational leadership at all levels of the organisation; that excellence is not simply defined by Ofsted grades and league table positions; and that education can play a truly transformational role in the lives of children and contribute to the success and wellbeing of our wider society.

Through membership of Anglian Learning, these goals are achieved by working with like-minded schools, leaders, teachers and all staff who are dedicated to ensuring that all of our academies can offer an excellent education to all pupils, whatever their background and starting point.  Developing our staff is key to the success of Anglian Learning and we are committed to providing the best professional learning and training for all of our workforce.

Through our long and illustrious history via the village colleges, which place a strong emphasis of community education we can also claim with justification to be educating learners well into their 70s and 80s, as well as providing extensive support for young families via our locality links, and through our commitment to community health and wellbeing in our Sports Centres, and truly delivering cradle to grave opportunities.

Whether you are a parent considering sending your child to one of our schools; a prospective member of staff looking for the first or next step in your career; or a school that may wish to become a part of the Anglian Learning story, please see our website to get a flavour of what we offer as a Trust and the ambition we have for all members of our community.
