Our Schools

Pickwick Academy Trust is made up of four large primary schools in North Wiltshire: Aloeric Primary SchoolCorsham Primary SchoolIvy Lane Primary School and Queen’s Crescent School.  The schools came together to form our Multi-Academy Trust because they recognised the huge value of working together to drive school improvement and education innovation. The schools provide support and challenge to each other through developmental peer review, the sharing of best practice and having a common vision to improve outcomes and life chances for all the pupils across the Trust.
