Our Governors

Community Links Academy Trust was set up in 2012 and operates an alternative provision Academy for young people aged between 11 and 16 years - Education Links.  The Trust grew from the education work of Newham-based charity Community Links Trust Limited, and became completely independent from the charity in 2014.

Education Links is a multi-site Alternative Provision Free School (Academy) located in Newham, London.  The principal object of the academy is to provide alternative education for pupils referred by mainstream schools or local authorities, leading to those pupils being reintegrated to mainstream education, or supported to further education or training, gaining appropriate accreditation.
