About Glemsford Primary Academy

Glemsford Primary Academy is part of the Unity Schools Partnership Multi-Academy Trust. Being part of a bigger family offers us so many things: shared expertise, support and training, combined events and access to all kinds of opportunities for our children to link up with others.

Our school is housed in a uniquely characterful, Victorian building of Grade 2 listing. When the original clock up in the clock tower reaches ten to nine each morning, a Year 6 pupil takes their turn to pull the long cord and sound the old bell, for the beginning of school. Traditions like these are important to us.

We are fortunate to have two large fields and a range of facilities for gardening, outdoor adventures, climbing and playing together. Physical activity is valued as much as academic thought at Glemsford and we like to provide as many opportunities as we can for them to be outside.

We are situated at the centre of Glemsford, and we are proud to be a hub of the village, with strong links to many voluntary organisations and societies.

We have amazing, polite and inquisitive children, they are such confident and friendly pupils. We have positive staff who inspire and enthuse the children, and parents and governors who support us.

We are now recognised as a good school and our results over the past four years have been among some of the best in the county.

All of this means that children leave our school as confident, happy and smart young people ready and well equipped to face the challenges in the next step of their lives.
