The Kings of Wessex Academy



The Kings of Wessex Academy is one of the top-performing schools in the South West. We are a 13-18 Church of England academy serving the communities of the Cheddar Valley and beyond. At the time of our 2015 inspections we were judged 'good with an outstanding sixth form' by Ofsted and 'outstanding' in our Church of England Inspection.



Kings strives to provide a first class education for all. We have a dedicated team of staff who work hard to inspire our students to be the best that they can be and to stand out from the crowd. We have high expectations and work hard to provide all our students with the opportunities and support needed to enable them to achieve their full potential.



Students enjoy learning with amazing teachers, are able to choose from a wide range of subjects and have access to great facilities including our Leisure Centre. The Academy offers an exciting programme of enrichment activities including a plethora of clubs and activities, educational visits and opportunities in music and performing arts. As the adults of tomorrow our students are encouraged to develop their leadership skills through being ambassadors, acting as mentors for younger children and participation in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
