About Us

Lime Trust was established as a Multi Academy Trust in February 2015.  Lime Trust grew out of a primary school in North East London. In 2017, three primary schools in Peterborough chose to join Lime Trust and have since made dramatic progress.

On 1 September 2019, Lime Trust merged with Hornbeam Academy Trust. Hornbeam, a highly successful Trust formed in 2012 in North East London, focused on the special education sector, with three Ofsted Good academies.

In June 2020, Lime Academy Orton, a Special School in Peterborough, also joined Lime Trust and has quickly benefitted from collaborative working, knowledge and best practice.

The Trust now provides education across both mainstream and special education sectors, across three regions - London, Peterborough and Havering. Our academies share expertise and learning across sectors, breaking down institutional and educational barriers to everyone’s benefit.
