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 under that particular Ofsted framework.

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 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. It has also published three books (available on Amazon) related to the curriculum.

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. 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". He also wrote in 2016 to congratulate the school in being in the top 1% of schools in the country for its standards in writing.
