Welcome to Eastern Multi-Academy Trust


Welcome to Eastern-Multi-Academy Trust, a regionally based Trust with primary and secondary phase academies across the East of England.  Originally set up as CWA Academy Trust and sponsored by the College of West Anglia, due to the growth of the Trust and its success, it was decided that the time was right for the Trust to become independent.  The Eastern Multi-Academy Trust became an independent body and sponsor in its own right in May 2017.

The first secondary phase academy, King’s Lynn Academy, opened in 2010 and was followed by Downham Market Academy in 2013.  2014 was a period of rapid growth with two primary phase academies – Nelson Academy in Downham Market and Eastgate Academy in King’s Lynn – joining the Trust followed in September by our third secondary phase academy, King Edward VII AcademySouthery Academy became our third primary phase academy in 2016 and in 2017, the Trust also welcomed North Wootton Academy , Upwell Academy and Emneth Academy in the primary phase.

Our family of academies helps us fulfil our desire of establishing a vibrant education system that enthuses young people and supports economic development of the region, raising standards throughout and aiding transition through the system. Our academies promote individual learning through inspirational teaching and challenging lessons, driving up academic standards and achievement rates well above national levels.  This has been particularly recognised with strong Ofsted outcomes in the primary phase for Nelson Academy (Good) and Eastgate Academy (Outstanding) in 2017.

Like all strong families, the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust seeks to offer mutual support to one another, develop shared learning and understanding, collaborate to achieve better outcomes, recognise unique qualities and differences, be positive and aspirational, focus on the successes of individuals and develop a culture of healthy competition.
