The Kingsbridge Educational Trust was formed in September 2016 by the joining together of two schools: Oakgrove Secondary and Middleton Primary. Prior to this, the two schools had a long history of working together and in September 2014 had formed an ‘umbrella’ trust to oversee the development of Primary and Nursery provision at Oakgrove.

The decision to form a multi-academy trust was made in January 2016, following the exploration of different models of governance. The multi-academy trust became operational on 1 September 2016.

On 1 July 2017, Monkston Primary formally joined and in August 2017, the new all-through school at Kents Hill Park was awarded to the Trust, which opened in September 2018.  Kingsbridge was then delighted to welcome Hockliffe Lower School into the Trust on January 2024.

Kingsbridge is currently working with Bedfordshire Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council on a new primary school, Willow Grove, in Wixams, Bedford, which is due to open in September 2024.
