CEO Welcome

Welcome to The Duchy Academy Trust website.


Together we inspire, together we nurture, together we achieve


This is our mission statement chosen by all those associated with the academy. We also share five values; respect, happiness, creativity, friendship and perseverance.


The Duchy Academy Trust was launched in February 2014. It is a dynamic collaboration of three schools, Boyton Primary, Callington Primary and Lewannick Primary.


At the heart of The Duchy Academy Trust are the children of the schools. Opportunities from the collaboration so far have included; sports tournaments, leading assemblies in other schools, days’ activities for gifted and talented pupils, full scale ‘evacuations’ from one school to another as part of a World War II topic, school council get-togethers and children from one school being ‘dragons’ in a Dragons’ Den activity in another. Each year, Year 6 children from each school get together for a residential in Brittany.


Please visit the individual school websites for more information about each school.
