Every child, every chance, every day.


It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Amherst School. We are proud that our 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 they can be.


At Amherst, our Vision and Mission statements are central to everything we want to achieve for our children and the wider community.



At Amherst, we nurture and develop the values, knowledge, and skills our children need to flourish and make a positive difference in our community  and the world. 


Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day


Amherst school is a caring, inclusive community based on friendship, respect, and trust. We encourage our children to demonstrate our six core values at all times:

  • Kindness
  • Respect
  • Confidence
  • Open-Mindedness
  • Honesty
  • Resilience 


The staff at Amherst School are determined to provide the highest possible standards of teaching and learning for every child. We aim to provide an exciting curriculum designed to meet our children’s needs and develop global perspectives. 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.
