A new secondary school, Trumpington Community College, is being developed by the City of Cambridge Education Foundation/Parkside Federation on the Clay Farm development, which is close to Trumpingington Meadows. The school will open in 2015, with a capacity for 750 students and extensive facilities accessible by the community.
