Welcome to Axminster Community Primary Academy

Axminster Primary Academy is a school where the community is at the heart of what we do, working to enable children to grow creatively and to achieve their best in a happy and secure environment.

‘I am the learner; I have high expectations’.

Our high expectations extend to all aspects of the school's work: academic standards, behaviour, respect, kindness and courtesy.

We feel very proud that you have taken the time to find out about Axminster Primary Academy which became part of the Acorn Multi Academy Trust in November 2014. The Academy provides education to children aged from 2-11 years from the local area of Axminster.
