A Warm Welcome
Welcome to Drake Primary Academy’s website. I hope you find the information you are looking for here. We pride ourselves on being a warm and friendly school that welcomes visitors and actively encourages a partnership with parents. Indeed OFSTEd noted that 'staff go the extra mile to help pupils- whenever they need it.' We strive to provide a high quality creative and engaging education within a caring and happy environment where our children thrive.
We believe that education is a lifelong process and that whatever children learn here with us will from the building blocks for the rest of their lives. With our partner school Morice Town Academy, we have designed a relevant and well considered curriculum ensuring that:
All pupils will leave Drake and Morice Town Primary Academies with the skills and knowledge to know ‘who they are and where they are in the world’. They will have a sense of place and purpose to thrive in a multicultural, diverse society.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and find all the information you need. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries or if you wish to organise a visit.

Yesterday, Year 1 went on their first school trip. The sun came out to join them! They found so many signs that Autumn was here and collected lots of leaves for their leaf chalk art. @ReachSouth1
Last week, Year 2 were busy writing letters from a piece of PE equipment. On Friday, they published and illustrated their letters, ready to share with Year 5. @ReachSouth1
This week in Year 1, the class have been looking at historical timelines. Using their enquiry skills, they have tried to work out which toys from the past are still played with today. @ReachSouth1
Year 1 have been practising retelling the story of Nobot the robot through a storymap. Here is just a small part of it. I’m sure you will agree that they have done fantastically well. @ReachSouth1
It was great to welcome our pupils back today. 😊 @ReachSouth1
