Beck Row Primary Academy is in the growing village of Beck Row, just a couple of miles from the market town of Mildenhall and opposite RAF Mildenhall base. Over recent years, we have expanded through Suffolk’s School Re-organisation process from a small First school to a growing Primary school and we currently have about 250 pupils on roll. We are proud to be part of Academy Transformation Trust, a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) with academies locally and in other areas of the UK.

We aim to inspire all our pupils to achieve well and enjoy learning, with an exciting and enriching topic-based curriculum.

Our values of thoughtfulness, co-operation, morality and respect are lived by us all in myriad ways each day as the Beck Row family, preparing our pupils for life as active citizens in Modern Britain. We support each other in times of need and celebrate success together.

‘As one pupil commented, ‘At Beck Row, everyone is part of a family.” (Ofsted 2020)
