Official opening for Ermine Street Church Academy

Ermine Street Church Academy, a primary school forming part of the Alconbury Weald masterplan, has celebrated its official opening with a day of activities and a ceremony led by the Bishop of Ely, the Right Reverend Stephen Conway, and the Reverend Julian Pursehouse, chair of the east Anglian District of the Methodist Church. The 3-form entry school first opened its doors last September to ten students, and now caters to over 70. The school was designed to help create and shape the emerging community at Alconbury, with outdoor communal spaces and a double height school hall that provides a civic marker for the new neighbourhood.
