    On Friday, we had a fire engine visit Colmers Farm Primary School to check they can access our site. At Colmers Farm, we are always looking to utilise every possible learning opportunity, and this was an opportunity that was too good to pass up.

  • The World Reimagined Project

    Since May, pupils in our Year 5 and 6 art club have been working on a project called ‘The World Reimagined’.
