About us

West Row Academy is a village school 2 miles from Mildenhall, 16 miles from Bury St Edmunds and 25 miles from Cambridge. Currently, we can take up to 270 children and welcome applicants from outside West Row village. Over the period 2017-2018 the school will have capacity for 300 pupils and in 2018-2019 we plan to expand to have capacity for 330 pupils.

We take children aged from five to eleven years of age.

The academy is set in beautiful grounds with a large playing field, a vegetable garden, a wildlife area and a secret garden. The building is late Victorian in design with some modern extensions.

We have a pre-school on site; the staff from both settings work very closely together to ensure continuity of learning and easy transition for our children. The academy has friendly, experienced staff and excellent resources, including fantastic ICT facilities.

We have 8 classes and offer a broad and stimulating curriculum which meets the needs of our pupils, helps them achieve high standards and builds their self esteem. We aim to make our pupils well motivated, life-long learners who enjoy learning for its own sake.
