The Wisbech Academy

Wisbech Free School – Approval to Open in September 2024

We are delighted to confirm that the decision to open a new secondary school in Wisbech has received the approval from Ministers at the Department for Education.

After half term, we are inviting you, parents and students who are interested in applying for one of the 120 Year 7 places at the new school to join us on Monday 3rd June at 5.30pm at Thomas Clarkson Academy.

At the ‘Open Evening’, school leaders will be able to share more information about the school and explain how you can apply for a place at the school.

A representative and Councillors from Cambridgeshire County Council are also planning to attend to answer any questions around the Council led aspects of the project and how the Council will be working closely with the school leaders to coordinate the admissions process.

Now the buildings have been approved by the relevant authorities, we will also be able to share more details about our vision for the school and unveil the new school logo – which we have been working with local pupils to create over the past few weeks.

Please see details of the complete letter from the Brooke Weston Trust below.
