Stratton Education Trust was formed in February 2012 when Stratton Upper School and Gamlingay Village College federated and became academies. 
 
Gamlingay Village College transferred to Cam Academy Trust in September 2017, federated with Gamlingay First School and became a primary school.
 
SET has a Board of Trustees who deal with finance, premises and strategic issues, whilst taking overall responsibility for the Trust.  The Board is appointed by the Members of the Trust.  There is also a Local Governing Body, including both Parent and Staff Governors, who oversee standards, behaviour and attendance.  Both Trustees and Governors are appointed for a four-year term.
 
Trustees and Governors can be contacted through the school office or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We will be pleased to hear from you.
