Somers Heath Primary School

Somers Heath School was built in 1956. Somers Heath County Primary School was formed in April 1984 by the amalgamation of the former Infant and Junior Schools.

Classrooms are spacious and each has its own   cloakroom area, boys and girls toilets, washbasins and sinks. There are two playgrounds and the school fields, which include  a soccer pitch, a concrete cricket strip and a “wildlife area”, which surround the two-storey school building. The Assembly/Dining Hall is well equipped as is the school library.

A nursery class was opened in the Spring of 1996 which admits up to 26 full- time equivalent children. Disabled toilets and accessibility facilities were added in April 2005 together with a new entrance, office and staffroom.

In 2012 Somers Heath undertook a major refurbishment of the Nursery and Reception classes. Junior classes received new furniture. In Sept 2015 the school expanded in size with an ​extra class being added in Reception and Year 2. An extra Year 3 class was opened in March 2016 and, in September 2016 our infants moved to a newly refurbised building on our site.

 The school has a very stable staff who have created a positive and welcoming environment.

2016/17 School development - the school continues to expand in size and nearly all year groups are have two forms. ​In March 2017 the new school was complete. We have a new administration block, large staff room, conference room, changing rooms and breakout rooms for small group work.

In April 2017 Somers Heath Primary had our official opening attended by The Mayor of Thurrock, neighbours, friends of the school and many former staff.
