The Wyche Primary School is set in a semi-rural location on the slopes of the Malvern Hills. The school has a reputation of being welcoming and friendly, yet without compromising the high academic standards its pupils are able to achieve.

The school has obtained an "outstanding" grade in both of its last two Ofsted inspections. Indeed the school achieved this grade in every area of the inspection and as far as we are aware The Wyche remains the only primary school in the country to have achieved such an accolade.

The opening sentence of the report reads;
"This is an outstanding school where pupil's personal, social and
emotional development goes hand in hand with the pursuit of high standards"

Ofsted also described the school as;
"An outstanding school with excellent teaching and an inspirational curriculum"

The LA awarded the school a "Effective Practice" award (2014-15) describing the school as being
"at the cutting edge of curriculum development"

The school has developed its own curriculum which it teaches through the concept of curricular vehicles. A film of the  school is  on the QCA website demonstrating effective curriculum practice and school is also featured on film in the LA Teaching and Learning DVD. 

The school has recognised strengths in:
Teaching and Learning (LA Effective Practice award) Art (Artsmark Gold), Music (Ofsted), ICT (Ofsted, Becta lead school), Sport (Activemark), School Leadership (NCSL Leadership Development school) and is an ECO school (Green Flag status) The school has its own TV Studio, Radio Station and Recording Studio.

SAT scores remain consistently high. The school has topped the county league table both in terms of the "Aggregate Points Score" and the "Value Added" measure in recent years and was included in all three of the BBC best school's list including "The Best of the Best". In 2010 it was the leading school in the county and was listed as the 75th school in the whole country based on its Value Added score on the BBC "Best Results" website. In 2013 it was in "The Times" Top school list. In 2015 Nick Gibb (Minister of State for Schools) wrote to the school commending it on being "one of only 187 schools in the country to achieve our level of attainment"
