Eastern Multi-Academy Trust is committed to being a provider of high quality education across the primary and secondary sectors. Its ambition is to grow further but to remain true to its roots within the locality and use its knowledge and understanding of the area to support this. It also aims to become a provider of services for other schools and academies from educational support and training to Human Resources.
We aim to provide excellent opportunities for all and will not treat any applicants, employees, students or other clients unfavourably by reason of any protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act 2010. We strive to provide excellent training and support for our staff and offer career pathways for staff across our different academies and central operations.

Housing – buying or renting
There are many housing areas across the region, with a range of housing available from modern new-builds through to traditional farmhouse cottages. Housing is fairly reasonably priced across West Norfolk and Fenland, with house prices rising in the areas closer to Norwich and Cambridge city centres. There are opportunities to live in varied surroundings of towns, villages, cities, rural and near the sea. More information is available on websites such as rightmove.co.uk or findaproperty.com.

Keyhomes East (KHE) provides key public sector workers with access to affordable housing in the East of England. This applies to qualified teachers in colleges, which means relevant staff can qualify. This is particularly applicable to those living, or wishing to live, nearer to Cambridge. Opportunities are available through this scheme to rent or buy homes – for further information go to Keyhomes East.
Moving your family
The area has many childcare facilities and a range of primary and secondary schools. For full details of schools, please visit the council pages (Cambridgeshire County Council, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council and Norfolk County Council).
