Welcome from us all at Abbot Alphege Academy:

We are a growing one-form entry Church of England primary school in Bath.  We opened in September 2017 with our first intake of children. Currently, we have 4 classes  – Pipistrelle class (Reception and Year 1), Horseshoe class (Year 2), Barbastelle class (Year 3) and our oldest class, Natterers (Years 4 & 5).

As a school we celebrate our own heritage as a continuously evolving mix of cultures, backgrounds and beliefs. We strive to ensure that our children have positive, welcoming, internationalist outlooks so that they can become people who are ready to cherish the opportunities of a global workplace.

Above all, we are committed to ensuring that we always do our best, in everything we do. We seek the highest standards of academic, sporting, behavioural, artistic and social success.

Our firm belief is that every child is creative in some way or another, and as primary school teachers we have a unique role in nurturing that creativity by offering as many opportunities as possible for our children to explore. At Abbot Alphege Academy we do this through our wide ranging, topic-based curriculum as well as a variety of activities on offer through lunchtime breaks and after school clubs.

Central to almost everything we do are the expressive and creative arts. Teachers and tutors selected to work at Abbot Alphege Academy are of the highest calibre in terms of their teaching ability but we also have the expectation that they will bring particular expertise to further enhance our team.

Whilst our website will hopefully give a flavour of  school, the best way to find out about us is to come and visit.

We welcome the opportunity to show you around and look forward to seeing you very soon – just contact the school office to arrange an appointment..

Open Days

We are pleased to welcome prospective parents of children due to join Reception in September 2020.

Senior staff are always pleased to show prospective pupils’ parents the school at work and to hold individual meetings with parents to discuss the philosophy and aims of the school.  Please telephone 01225 580 281 for an appointment.

Abbot Alphege Academy is part of the Bath & Mendip Partnership Trust.  More information can be found on their website: https://thebathandmendippartnershiptrust.co.uk/
