Welcome from the Head of Primary

Julie Hearn Head of PrimaryMerchants’ Academy Primary is an exciting place to learn and work and we take seriously the fact that our children only get one chance at an excellent education. Some of you will already be familiar with the range of facilities and opportunities the Academy provides, for others the Nursery or Reception classes within the Primary Phase will be your first experience of what Merchants’ Academy has to offer.

From your child’s first days at Merchants’ Academy Primary we are confident that you will be impressed by the outstanding standards of teaching and the caring and supportive learning environment. We have a first class staff team which encourages children to reach their full potential and is a place where genuine partnerships are forged with parents.

Being able to stay in one school from Reception until university or employment provides enormous advantages for children at all stages of their schooling, as well as being very convenient for parents with children of different ages. Our primary children are given a head start in the curriculum, being taught Modern Foreign Languages, Science, PE and Music by specialist subject teachers. This is common practice at leading private primary schools but relatively unheard of elsewhere.

Merchants’ Academy Primary lies at the heart of the community, we are proud of what we have to offer and invite you to find out more.
