About the schools

Uffculme Academy Trust is a multi-academy trust (MAT) working across Devon and Somerset. In September 2019, Holyrood Academy and Axe Valley Academy joined Uffculme Academy Trust to create a MAT of four schools delivering education to around 3000 children and young people from the ages of 4-19. In January 2021, a fifth school, Neroche Primary joined the Trust.

Holyrood Academy is an 11-18 Academy in Somerset with approximately 1250 students on roll – including around 150 in the sixth form. It is situated in the centre of the market town of Chard and it is the only secondary school in the town. We are therefore fully comprehensive and committed to providing an excellent education in the service of our whole community.
