Wedmore First School Academy
Wedmore First School Academy was formed in 1876.
The present school moved to its current attractive site with large grounds and views of fields and orchards in 1990. The school was extended in 2016/17 creating four new large and airy classrooms linked to the original school building.
We are fortunate to have our own heated outdoor swimming pool, a vegetable garden and polytunnel plus extensive playing areas, including an activity trail. The adjoining sports facilities can also be accessed by the school, including an all-weather surface sports pitch which we use regularly for games sessions.
We play an integral role in the life of Wedmore village, which enjoys a particularly strong and vibrant sense of community. Our staff and pupils participate in numerous local events and regularly attend services at St. Mary’s Church. Although not affiliated to a particular religious body, religious education at the school is Christian-based and non-denominational.
Our school meals are freshly prepared on site every day and offer pupils great nutrition and choice. We offer extended care to pupils on site before and after school.
On the 1st September 2016, we became part of a multi academy trust known as the Wessex Learning Trust. The trust comprises 8 schools within the Cheddar Valley geographic area. The multi academy trust can offer educational provision from ages 2 – 19. There is a strong sense of partnership between the 8 schools and a commitment to providing a top-quality education for all children at every stage of learning.
