Welcome from the Head of Primary

Stuart woodburn newAt Merchant’s Academy Primary we take very seriously the fact that our children only get one chance at an excellent education. We are incredibly ambitious for all our children and want them to be successful in their career both at primary and beyond.

At the root of our success is the school’s exceptionally caring and inclusive ethos and sheer determination to put pupils’ happiness and safety first. 

Here at Merchant’s Academy Primary we promote courtesy, co-operation, good manners and mutual respect.

We have very high expectations in terms of behaviour for learning and we promote the need for a positive ‘can do’ attitude in all that we do. A friendly, family atmosphere exists in which pupils of all abilities are supported in their learning.

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.
