Welcome from the Head Teacher

My name is Ian Toon and I’m the executive head teacher between Ab Kettleby and Somerby Primary School.

We are small rural school with 66 children on roll.  We have four classes that have a mixed year group structure.

I hope that you enjoy reading all about us and what we have to offer. Our ethos is ‘Loving Learning’ and we strive to learn altogether in a fun and creative way.

If you would like to find out more about us, or you would like to come for a look round, please do not hesitate to contact me. Further information regarding the admission process for Leicestershire schools can be accessed from the following link: 

Our school became an academy on 1st April 2014 and we are part of the Mowbray Education Trust (MET) which is a Multi Academy Trust (MAT).  The MET website can be accessed by clicking on the following link: Mowbray Education Trust . 

The trust is made up of the following schools and nursery: 

John Ferneley College (Secondary school)
Ab Kettleby (Primary school)
The Grove (Primary school)
Brownlow (Primary school)
Somerby (Primary school )
Sherard (Primary school)
Oasis (Nursery)

The multi-academy trust is the most formalised type of collaborative structure available for academies. Within a multi-academy trust all schools are governed by one academy trust. The make-up of the multi-academy trust is prescribed by the standard DfE Articles of Association; the governors are mainly appointed by the members.  Currently our teaching follows the national curriculum and our school day starts at 0900 until 1515.

Enjoy the read and we hope to see you soon. 
Kind regards, 
Ian Toon
