The Marleigh development offers its residents a wide choice of high-quality homes designed to appeal to a broad mix of people. The first phase of the development has been focused on connectivity, providing people with everything they need right on their doorstep.
The heartbeat of the community is Marleigh Square, home to the Monkey Puzzle Nursery and the Hangar, a buzzing hub with a community centre, café, and office space, providing a shared place for neighbours to socialise. Green spaces will include sports pitches, a community centre, public parks, and allotment gardens.
Marleigh Primary Academy opened in September 2022 with places for 420 primary and nursery-aged children. Part of the Anglian Learning Multi-Academy Trust, it has a particular focus on STEM subjects — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — reflecting Cambridge's strength in these areas.
The innovative school design provides generous interior classrooms set around a shared learning area. It has extensive facilities for sports and outdoor learning, including a multi-sports all-weather pitch, green spaces, a vegetable garden, and woodland area. Arts also play a key role in the curriculum to support children's cognitive skills and excitement for learning.
