    Primrose Hill C of E Primary Academy is a Good school in all areas.

     "Pupils are confident, happy learners."  Ofsted November 2016

    'Super proud of our child's excellent report!  Thank you.  It really does describe her to a T!  She blows us away with her Maths too.  She has really enjoyed her time in Year 1 and has become a lot more confident.  Thank you.  (Wow to her Phonics test too!)'

    'We are very pleased that our daughter has really enjoyed her school year in Primrose Hill.  She is always happy and positive in all school activities, and always contributes her gifts and talents to the school.  I'm also very pleased that she always has a good relationship with her teachers and her peer groups.'  Parent 2017 feedback.

    Principal’s welcome

    Our Vision Statement:

    We aspire that this Church Academy will be a distinctive centre of excellence, where our children become independent, thinking, resilient individuals with a passion for learning and enquiry.  They will be taught by skilled teachers who nurture every pupil and embed Christian values to maximise potential.

    Primrose Hill Church of England Primary Academy is a large school on the edge of the town of Lydney and close to the Forest of Dean. Classrooms and shared areas provide attractive and effective teaching and learning spaces. Other facilities include an ICT suite, a recently refurbished library and a brand new 'outdoor classroom'. Our school has extensive grounds overlooking the Severn Valley. We are well resourced to deliver the curriculum. 

    Victoria Henson  Principal


    Clear Christian values underpin our work at Primrose Hill, with personal, social, spiritual and moral development high on the agenda alongside academic achievement. Our aim is to provide a wide range of curricular and other experiences for the children. Work is differentiated to meet the needs of the individual. School development continues to focus on English and Maths. We have been working hard to support parents in helping children in their work. We believe that learning should be enjoyable, meaningful and engaging and should foster both creativity and links with the ‘real world’.  For more information visit about our academy
