Summerhill Primary Academy

We are proud to be leaders of this 4-form entry primary school which caters for pupils from 3 to 11 years old. Within each class the children work in both ability and mixed-ability groups ensuring all children are supported and challenged at a level which is appropriate for their ability. We are dedicated to preparing our children to be active citizens, in an ever changing world by providing a curriculum based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Teaching and learning is also supported by the use of technology and 1:1 IPads.

As a school, we are committed to creating a happy and vibrant community, where everyone feels valued, where students are stretched and supported academically and are given memorable experiences that excite them about learning for life. This is underpinned by our school values.
