The White Rose Academies Trust is a local Trust dedicated to raising and fulfilling the ambitions of young people. Our academies are based in some of the most diverse and challenging areas of the UK, but all have at their core a truly inspirational student community. We are confident that our students will be the leaders of the future and that under their leadership, communities and nations will be radically transformed.
Alder Tree Primary was built in the 1930s and was previously named Potternewton Primary School, changing to Mill Field Primary School in 2007 after merging with another local primary school, Miles Hill Primary. Alder Tree Primary joined the trust in December 2020.

Our academy is a unique and truly inspirational place to work and is greatly enhanced and enriched by our wonderful student body who come from a diverse range of different cultures, heritages, and experiences, making the Academy and community an amazing place to study and work.
