Welcome

Nicki Edwards, Headteacher

We are very proud of our school which attracts students from around North and West Dorset as well as South Somerset. The School became an academy on 1 August 2012. We are a Church of England School, but as the secondary school for all children, our religious character is highly inclusive, embracing those of all faiths and of no faith.
