About ESSA Primary

Essa Primary Academy is a free school for primary children aged 4-11 which opened in September 2014 in Bolton. We are part of the ESSA Foundation Academy Trust (EFAT) family. We are currently two-form entry (two classes of 30 children in each Year Group) from Reception to Year 3, and one-form entry (1 class of 30 children) in Year 4 and 5. We don’t currently have a Year 6 but we will be full two-form entry by September 2020. In January 2018 there were 291 (CHECK) pupils on roll.
