Welcome to Somerfords’ Walter Powell CofE Primary School

Somerfords’ Walter Powell CofE Primary 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.

Our school is part of a three-school partnership with two other local schools: Christian Malford and Seagry CofE Primary Schools.  The three schools are led by our Executive Headteacher, Mrs Andrea Kaye and Miss Lisa Shibley is the Head of School at Somerfords’ Walter Powell who is responsible for the day-to-day running of the school.

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.
