Amherst Primary School

Every child, every chance, every day.


We are very proud that Amherst School is a caring and special place where children grow, learn and flourish. Amherst children are always encouraged, often challenged and undoubtedly supported to be the best that they can be.


At Amherst we aim to nurture and develop:


  • Successful Learners who will achieve in many fields and excel in some
  • Confident and motivated learners who are willing to meet a challenge and are able to take risks in their learning
  • Happy and secure children who can contribute effectively to both the school and the wider community
  • Responsible and caring citizens who have a well-developed sense of right and wrong and the conscience to make the right choice


Amherst school is a caring, inclusive community based on friendship, respect, and trust. We encourage our children to follow NED (Never give up, Encourage others, Do your best) in all aspects of their school life. Children are encouraged to value themselves and the uniqueness of others. Standards of behaviour are high throughout the school and children know and understand what we expect from them and rise to that challenge.


Our staff are determined to provide the highest possible standards of learning and teaching for every child. We aim to provide an exciting curriculum designed to meet our children’s needs delivered through engaging and inspirational teaching. We ensure that learning is matched to a child’s ability and has the appropriate level of support and challenge. At Amherst, we value every child’s contribution and encourage them to respect and value those of others.


We hope that with your support, your child will find Amherst a happy school in which to thrive and develop. We look forward to working with you. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information or would like to arrange a visit.
