ONE of Wisbech’s biggest schools has acquired academy status.

Peckover Primary School, which was established in 1953, joined the Brooke Weston Trust group of schools at the beginning of the month.

The trust, which originates from Corby, already runs Thomas Clarkson Academy, Wisbech, as well as four secondary and three primary schools in Northamptonshire.

David Oliver, the chair of governors, said: “The Brooke Weston Trust was chosen to sponsor Peckover by the governors because it can offer the support and expertise to be able to continue to develop Peckover from a good to an outstanding school.

“The staff are looking forward to working with the trust in order to further progress the high standard of education that Peckover children get.”
