At the Fulbridge Academy, we are the curators of the next generation. We strive for excellence; continuously innovating and
pushing the boundaries of conventional teaching methods. Our structured, supportive network provides students and staff with
a deep rooted foundation which enables them to fulfil their potential. Learning at Fulbridge is creative, tangible and colourful.
We do things differently, so that we can continue in our mission to deliver the highest quality of education to every student.
My name is Ben Erskine and I am Principal of The Fulbridge Academy and Executive Principal for the Primary Schools in the
Four Cs Multi Academy Trust (MAT). Fulbridge School originally opened in 1935 and converted to Academy status in March
2013 after being judged as ‘Outstanding’ in all Ofsted judgement areas in March 2012.
In April 2017, the Academy became part of The Four Cs MAT. Therefore, anyone employed after this date will be on a Four Cs
The MAT comprises of Arthur Mellows Village College (AMVC), Fulbridge Academy and Discovery Primary School. We have
also won a bid to build a new Free School in a new township that is currently being built. The MAT plans to expand further.
Fulbridge and AMVC created the Trust. Mike Sandeman, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and myself lead the Four Cs Trust
along with the Trust Board. AMVC are currently in the process of applying for a new secondary free school. The Free Schools
will be 10 minutes from our Academy in an area called the Paston Reserve. There is more information on our website about this
The Academy serves one of the oldest parts of the city. It is a four-form entry school (120 per year group). To accommodate the
expansion, a brand new building was constructed in 2014 on a site two minutes walk away to accommodate two year groups.
This building has its own staff room, office, outdoor area and assembly/performance hall.
The Fulbridge Academy is a very forward thinking, successful and popular school that is full to capacity. We are a National
School of Creativity, a Cambridge Primary Review Trust Alliance School and a Whole Education Pathfinder and Partner School.
We deem the Arts and PE to be as important as the more traditionally academic subjects.
The Academy has very supportive Governors, Trustees and parents many of whom went to the school themselves. Since 2008
we have had a Children’s Centre on site, which helps to provide pre-school provision and adult support groups.
The Fulbridge Academy is much larger than most primary schools. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school
meals is above average at about 25%. Well above average proportions of pupils come from minority ethnic heritages. The
catchment area has been described as being rich in social and cultural diversity and most pupils live in the immediate vicinity of
An interview is a two way process, we want to choose the right person for our Academy/MAT and you need to be sure that our
Academy is right for you. We look for ‘inspiring’ teachers to join our Academy and guarantee outstanding support for all staff.
