Welcome to Somerfords’ Walter Powell School


Somerfords’ Walter Powell School is a small village primary school serving children and families from Little and Great Somerford as well as children from the surrounding towns and villages.

Ours is a school with a family atmosphere, where the whole school knows each other.

We have small year groups and mixed age classes that allow the teachers to be flexible in learning, teaching to ability rather than age.  The school is fortunate to have enthusiastic and highly motivated staff, who promote the ethos and character of our school.

We at Somerfords’ Walter Powell School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children In our care.


If you are looking for a primary school place for your child in September 2019, please come along and visit our lovely rural school during our Open Morning on Thursday 18th October 2018 – 9.30am – 12.00noon.
