Principal’s Welcome

Located within a unique community, Mildenhall College Academy is an inspiring, exciting academy in which your child can thrive. For the past forty years, the academy has served the community, placing great importance on providing an enriching academic experience and the highest quality of support for pupil well-being, which complement our World Class Curriculum.

From an extensive range of educational visits to participation in national STEM challenges, a supportive Mindfulness Club to a varied programme of arts and sports activities; our dedicated teachers create the very best learning environment for your child to be happy and to succeed whatever their interests, talents and aspirations. In our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2015, we achieved a Good rating in every category.

Currently located across two sites – Years 7 to 11 at our main Bury Road site and MCA6 Sixth Form at Sheldrick Way – by 2020 we will have a new home as part of the developing Mildenhall Hub, which will place the academy at the heart of our community and provide important connections with local businesses and services.

As an Academy Transformation Trust academy, we are part of a family of over twenty academies throughout the East of England, South East and Midlands, and work collaboratively with other members of The Trust to share best practice and give pupils every opportunity to be the best they can be.

You can be assured that your child will receive the highest standard of education and pastoral care during their time at Mildenhall College Academy, and I look forward to working with you and your child during this journey.
