The Somerset Primary PTA is deeply saddened by the decision to ultimately close Somerset Primary School. Somerset Primary remains an outstanding school providing a nurturing and diverse learning environment for students.

Since the beginning discussions surrounding school closures, we as a committee disliked the schools being compared to one another and the divide it has caused within the community.


We believe that both Somerset Primary and West End have core qualities along with history and memories that cannot be measured. For us, it has never been about which school is the best but rather the quality of education given to our children presently and in the years to come.

At this time the Somerset Primary PTA will be focusing on supporting the students of Somerset Primary School and those directly affected by the most recent decisions in our next steps as a school.
