Somers Park Primary School has evolved over recent years following the construction in 2018, of the Malvern Vale satellite expansion site less than a mile from Somers Park. Despite differences in uniform, our two sites work very much as one, with teachers working together and children following the same curriculum. Growing a year group at a time, our Malvern Vale site now has Reception, Year 1, 2, 3 and 4 classes, and we will be at the 7 class capacity by September 2024. In our opinion we have the best of both worlds- fantastic modern facilities with a small school feel at Malvern Vale, accompanied by a main school with an established, forward thinking culture, demonstrating proven success over a number of years. As an early academy convertor, we are now the largest school in Mercian Education Trust, a small Trust comprising five Worcestershire schools, over 6 sites. Our local community is most settled, and there are strong family connections with the school. It is not unusual for parents, grand-parents and even great grand-parents of pupils to have attended Somers Park. A large majority of staff employed in school have either attended Somers Park, had their own children in school, or live close by. We are proud of the way our learners are prepared for the next phase of their education and beyond, promoting our Think. Know. Explain. Do. curriculum model which encourages inquisitive thinking and independent learning, enhanced by a balanced and interesting enrichment programme of additional experiences and visits. Primary Schools in Tanzania make a direct contribution to our creative and enriched curriculum.
