Holyrood Academy is an 11-18 Academy in Somerset with approximately 1350 students on roll – including around 160 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.

Holyrood was last inspected in February 2023 when it achieved a 'Good' rating in all areas of inspection.

Holyrood Academy is part of Blackdown Education Partnership thereby creating opportunities to work as part of a team of highly effective school leaders. It allows each school in the MAT to share good practice and provides exceptional opportunities to learn from each other. All our senior leaders are system leaders and regularly contribute to the leadership programmes of Teaching Schools across the region.

The leadership team at Holyrood Academy consists of a mix of newly appointed and highly experienced senior leaders. All are driven to deliver exceptional experiences and educational outcomes for young people and have firmly bought into the BEP principles of excellence.

Holyrood benefits from a large and beautifully situated site within easy commuting distance of towns such as Taunton and Yeovil as well as the cities of Exeter and Bristol. Chard is on the edge of the Blackdown Hills and close to the Devon and Dorset coastlines.

The Academy occupies a split site; however, both sites are located on the same campus. We are therefore lucky enough to have a great deal of open space and our staff and students enjoy excellent facilities.
