About the Organisation

Summerhill Academy is a large school in St George, Bristol.It is a three-form entry school taking children from the ages of 7 to 11.

At Summerhill Academy we aim to promote a caring atmosphere for our children. We provide a broad, balanced curriculum with a strong emphasis on reading, writing and mathematics. We have high expectations of all our children and seek to develop their strengths and love of learning whilst they are at Summerhill.

We recognise the importance of working in partnership with parents and actively encourage their involvement in school life. we have a strong tradition of enrichment activities which includes a range of sports clubs. We also have a well attended Breakfast Club which run from 7.45 to 8.30am.

We aim to be an integral part of the community. We aspire to embed in our children values which underpin their spiritual, moral, academic and social development. We believe this to be a life long learning path.
