Alternatively, in summary...
Cuckoo Hall Academy
One of the first primary schools to convert to academy status in 2010, Cuckoo Hall is a well-established Primary Academy with four-form entry and 960 pupils; it is located in Cuckoo Hall Lane, Edmonton N9.
Woodpecker Hall Academy
A two-form entry Academy launched in September 2011 under the government's "Free Schools" programme, which shares the same campus as Cuckoo Hall. Woodpecker Hall occupies a new, state-of-the-art single-storey building which fronts onto Nightingale Lane, Edmonton N9. 300 pupils on roll from September 2014, rising to 480 by September 2017.
Kingfisher Hall Primary Academy
This new academy opened in September 2012, also as a two-form entry Free School, like Woodpecker Hall. The academy now occupies its brand new, state-of-the-art two-storey school building, just off The Ride in Enfield Highway, EN3 and was recently officially opened by Boris Johnson, Mayor of London. 240 pupils on roll from September 2014, rising to 480 by September 2018.
Enfield Heights Academy
Enfield Heights is the most recent primary academy to come under the CHAT management umbrella. Opened in September 2012 by CfBT SchoolsTrust, in partnership with the EN3 Action Group, its management transferred to CHAT in the summer of 2014. It is a one-form entry school, currently with 75 pupils, and will grow to its full capacity of approximately 200 pupils by September 2018. The academy is located in Pitfield Way, EN3.
Heron Hall Academy
Opened in September 2013 as a Free School, with a three-form Year 7 intake of 90 students, Heron Hall is now into its second year of operation with 180 students on its roll. It is hoped it will become an eight-form entry secondary academy, with the capacity to provide all-through education for all CHAT primary academy pupils; it will also accept primary pupils from elsewhere, space permitting.
A suitable permanent site for the new academy has been purchased by the Department for Education on behalf of CHAT; the chosen area forms part of the former Middlesex University site, just off Queensway in Ponders End. Whilst the new academy buildings are made ready in Ponders End for occupation by Heron Hall in September 2015, its students are being accommodated and taught on the Cuckoo Hall campus in Cuckoo Hall Lane, Edmonton N9.
