Earl Soham is a thriving village approximately 3 miles from the town of Framlingham on the A1120. There are many village clubs and organisations to suit residents of all ages. The catchment area for our school includes the villages of Earl Soham, Cretingham, Monewden and Ashfield.
Earl Soham Community Primary School is part of the Debenham Pyramid of schools, which includes Bedfield CEVC Primary School, Creeting St Mary CEVA Primary School, Helmingham Community Primary School, Sir Robert Hitcham CEVA School Debenham, Stonham Aspal CEVA Primary School and Wetheringsett CEVC Primary School.
At age 11 pupils transfer to either Thomas Mills High School (Earl Soham residents) or Debenham High School (Cretingham, Monewden and Ashfield residents).

Our school works closely with another small local school (Bedfield) enabling our pupils and staff to enjoy many shared activities. In previous years children in Year 6 from both schools have joined together in a residential trip to Sizewell for their African Adventure. In 2019 we continued to work together and visited Belsey Bridge for a shared residential week away. This allows the children to get to know one another prior to high school and gives them opportunities to form friendship bonds. Unfortunately in 2020 the residential was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. In 2021 our year 6 pupils will be visiting Hautbois in Norfolk.
Other primary schools in the area include Dennington CEVC Primary School, Framlingham Sir Robert Hitcham's CEVA Primary School, Easton Primary School and Wickham Market Primary School.
