School trust managing primary school and nursery set to open in Maldon opening tours

Limebrook Primary School and Nursery, sponsored by Lion Academy Trust, will open its doors in September 2024.

Built on the Limebrook Way housing development, it aims to offer excellent teaching and learning and state-of-the-art facilities to families in Maldon.

In its first year, the brand new school will have 30 reception places and up to 56 nursery and daycare places, with extended hours and wrap-around care to support local, working parents.

When at capacity, the two-form entry school will provide more than 400 places for local children, featuring indoor and outdoor facilities, spacious classrooms and high-quality IT resources.

The school is the newest member of Lion Academy Trust, a Multi-Academy Trust with ten academies across Essex, London and Wellingborough and has an excellent track record; with all schools that have been inspected in the last two years either rated as good or outstanding from Ofsted.

The team have held a number of fully booked tours for interested parents and carers as January’s admissions deadline for Reception places nears. There are limited dates and spaces remaining in November and December.

Aaron Wright, executive headteacher said: “It’s been brilliant to see the excitement amongst families for our brand new primary school and nursery at our fully booked open events.

“There’s a real sense of community here and we’re looking forward to being an integral part of it. “At Lion Academy Trust we believe that all children have a right to access an outstanding education, and we can’t wait to bring our expertise to Maldon.

“If you’re looking for a Reception or nursery place for September 2024 do join us on a tour to see how we can support you and your child.”

Interested parents and carers are invited to come and see one of Lion Academy Trust’s existing schools to see the kind of provision on offer at Limebrook Primary School and Nursery.

The remaining tours are taking place on November 23, December 1 and December 8 at Maple Grove Primary School in Pitsea, which is part of the Lion Academy Trust.
