An academy trust with schools across Cambridgeshire and Essex has won a prestigious national education award.
Anglian Learning was crowned joint-winner of the "outstanding governance in a multi-academy trust" trophy at the National Governance Association (NGA) awards at the House of Commons on Thursday, September 9.
Anglian Learning's schools include Bassingbourn, Bottisham and Linton village collages, and the Joyce Frankland Academy in Newport, near Saffron Walden.
The NGA represents state-funded school governors and administrators.
