Welcome to Selwood
Welcome to Selwood Academy – an Anglican /Methodist Foundation Middle school serving the needs of children ages 9- 13 in years 5-8.
The children at Selwood are a delight and they make coming to school exciting and enriching every day. As Head teacher I feel very blessed to lead, develop and share their love of learning alongside our dedicated staff teams.
The School aims to be at the heart of the Frome community and we have a clear vision for the future. Every child and every family do matter to us, and we are committed to creating a safe, happy and enriching environment where all members of our community thrive, achieve and celebrate success together. Our Christian ethos is central to all that we strive to achieve and we welcome and value children of all faiths and denominations and those with none equally. Selwood is a vibrant Middle school which although seemingly quite large in population, is as personalised and knowledgeable as a small school, in its provision. We want our children to remember their time here for the rest of their lives with great pride, and many return to tell us that they do, we have impressive Alumni.
This unique environment allows us to strive daily to offer the highest standard of education and pastoral care for our children. Every child is given the widest range of opportunity possible through our creatively structured curriculum and the extensive extra-curricular enrichment provision. We know our children well and they are proud to share their school with all who visit. (please take a look at the video to hear their views)
I am told repeatedly that visitors sense the uniqueness of our Ethos from the moment they step through our doors. I actively encourage you to come and visit and see first hand what a very special school we are, I look forward to meeting you soon.
