Our Academy

Our Academy

We are delighted to be able to take this opportunity to introduce you to Upwell Academy, part of the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust.  We offer a range of educational opportunities to boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 11, Reception through to Year 6. 

The school was built in 1878 and the original school house still provides the academy with an entrance lobby, offices and staff room. A new hall was completed in 2006 while the existing hall was converted to a classroom and library area. A mobile classroom was removed, creating a larger play area, and Bramley Room was refurbished to accommodate our Breakfast Club. Most recently, 2 additional classrooms provide a superb learning environment for upper Key Stage 2.

Our Academy has its own playing field, sensory and maths garden areas, a chicken coop, a 'Big Red Bus' and riverside learning space which all support the curriculum.
