Our Academy

Southery Academy, formerly Southery Primary School, is part of the Downham Market Academy cluster and educates approximately 93 pupils aged 4-11 each year.

The academy is part of the Eastern Multi-Academy Trust, and officially launched on 1st March 2016. Cromwell knew it was better for a Fenman to allow the King to escape, than to not help a man with a split feather in his hand; his later decision to execute King Charles I and break the Fenland tradition of showing mercy to those with a split grey goose feather caused many of his troops to leave and return to the Fens.
