About our School

The school is set in one of the most beautiful villages in Wiltshire, overlooking the valley and House of Longleat. The school was originally founded by the Thynne family and was once referred to as Lord Bath School. It has always been linked with the Longleat Estate and maintains these links with Lord and Lady Bath today. The school plays an important part in the life of the village. It benefits from a great deal of support from the local community and has many opportunities to contribute to it as well. In this way our school family is extended to include the support and friendship of many people who have the school's welfare at heart.

The building is 'listed' and is of great character. There are three classrooms, offices, cloakrooms, hall and kitchen. Excellent school meals are cooked on the premises in a well-equipped kitchen. The grounds are very attractive and provide opportunities for both play and learning. There is a grassed area, hard surface playground, adventure playground, rough 'wild' area, pond, secret garden and orchard. The school also makes use of the Village green for sports and events.
