CCEF was the Foundation Trust of the Parkside Federation, a partnership between Parkside Community College and Coleridge Community College and Ridgefield Primary School. The Federation converted to an Academy Trust in March 2011 (initially named Parkside Federation Academies and later Cambridge Academic Partnership (CAP)).
The Charity continued its strong relationship with CAP when it became a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) and within the Articles of Association had the right to appoint Members to the Trust. The CAP MAT has now closed and the CAP schools have formed the United Learning Cambridge Cluster. CCEF remains a separate charity but retains its close links with the Cluster.
Principal activity remains the Foundation Trust for Ridgefield and, so long as that school remains as a Foundation School, CCEF has that responsibility. CCEF is currently reviewing its Objectives, Purpose and Articles including the constitution for Trustees and Membership.
