Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

Our school, which has a high reputation for so many things, prides itself on having a sound, traditional approach to subjects but with the best of new technology and good quality facilities for the children. 

Axminster Primary Academy is rather special; you have only to approach the school to see that it is different from others. There is ample evidence outside to show that a caring attitude has been used in the environment and even more important is the fact that parents and inspectors have remarked that this caring attitude is transferred to relationships within the School. We are proud of this fact. Children are at the heart of Axminster Community Primary Academy and each child is encouraged to achieve the highest standard possible in all aspects of school life.

I hope you find the information on our website useful and informative, but obviously the best way to get a real feel about us is to come and visit us, look around and meet the children and staff.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.

Outdoor Learning

Outdoor Learning

Staff and pupils have been making the most of the glorious weather today by taking their learning outside.  Pupils were using our outdoor guided reading table for many activities and were also practising their throwing and catching skills with our Funfit programme.

Easter Extravaganza

Easter Extravaganza

Year 2 enjoyed an Easter egg hunt in our outside garden area.  They searched high and low and were very sucessful in finding all the hidden eggs.  The children then had a lot of fun in class making chocolate nest eggs which looked extremely yummy!

London Trip

London Trip
On Friday 20th March, children from Year 4 and 5 from Axminster went to London for the day.  For many of the Year 4 children it was their first time to London. 

Both classes left Axminster at 7:15 and had opportunity to see a little bit of the Eclipse (near Stonehenge of all places).  Once in London the Year 5 children were dropped at The Science Museum.  They had an exciting day and looked at may things; even sneaking into an extra workshop (with the permission of the museum of course).

After dropping the Year 5 children, Year 4 excitedly continued their trip to The British Museum. Whilst travelling they saw Buckingham Palace, The Mall, Harrods and Trafalgar Square.  At the British Museum the Year 4s got to see amazing exhibits linked to their topic work.  The exhibits included the Rosetta Stone, mummies and parts of the Sutton Hoo Hoard.

The children returned to school at 20:45 after a long day.  Click on the heading for more photos

World Book Day

World Book Day

Everyone at Axminster Primary joined in to celebrate World Book Day - all the staff and children dressed up as their favourite characters from a book or nursery rhyme, and some even invented their own character. Well done to all the children (and parents!) who made such a big effort to make the day special.

Spring Bulbs

Spring Bulbs

Year 3 have been hard at work planting bulbs around the school grounds. We are really looking forward to seeing them grow in the spring. Thank you to Colyton Garden Centre for donating the bulbs to our school.
