Our Trust of Schools


Matford Brook Academy is a 2-16 all through school based on the south west outskirts of Exeter. Opening in 2023 for the first cohorts of children in Nursery, Reception and Year 7, our all-through establishment models a ‘cradle to career’ approach with seamless support and opportunity for children throughout their school career.

At Matford Brook Academy, we write our story. Our mission to provide an excellent, allthrough education that empowers children to believe they can, and should, change the world around them. We do this through the values of scholarship, kindness and community.

Admission number(s)

The school has an admission number of 150 for entry in Year 7 and 90 in Reception. Admission to Reception at Matford Brook Academy is made on the understanding that Matford Brook Academy is an all-through school and children will automatically transfer to the secondary phase of the school in Year 7. The school will accordingly admit this number of pupils if there are sufficient applications. Where fewer applicants than the published admission number(s) for the relevant year group are received, the Academy Trust will offer places at the school to all those who have applied
