About Preston School Academy

Preston School is a highly successful 11-16 Specialist Business and Enterprise Academy in Yeovil, Somerset.

We believe that in order to enable learners to reach their full potential and for their unique talents to be nurtured and developed, there needs to be an on-going partnership and dialogue between home and school that provides the foundation for learning and achievement.

If students are to learn effectively, they need to be healthy, feel safe, and be happy and secure in school; we must all play our part in achieving this. Our objective is to guarantee success for every individual and much of what we do is designed to find the key that unlocks their interests and skills, enabling them to be successful both at Preston School and beyond.
