The Mead is a happy, vibrant place where children are enabled to dream, strive, achieve and celebrate. It is situated across two sites on the outskirts of Trowbridge; a larger site with 14 classes and a Nursery in Hilperton, and a smaller setting with four classes (including a pre-school provision) in Wingfield village. There are extensive grounds on both sites, which include wildlife areas, trim (agility) trail, pond, fruit and vegetable gardens. These are used extensively to enhance approaches to teaching and learning.​

The friendly, energetic and professional staff work together to establish a happy, popular school community. They take pride in offering a rich and vibrant curriculum with specialist teachers in music and PE, as well as early language learning for all years. ​

The career progression for staff is well-recognised, supporting initial teacher training through to roles at a leadership level.
