About The Blue School

School type
Academy, Church of England, ages 11 to 18
Education phase
View all Secondaryjobs
School size
1464 pupils enrolled
Age range
11 to 18

The Blue School is an 11 to 18 Church of England coeducational academy with over 1500 students. As the only state secondary school providing 11 to 18 education in the area, our students are drawn from the city of Wells and its surrounding villages and they provide us with a genuinely comprehensive intake. We enjoy a good reputation in the community and, consequently, we are regularly over-subscribed. Whilst being an academy enables us to have greater autonomy in the management of the school, we still retain strong links with Somerset Local Authority and work closely with other local schools. In 2017 we were designated a Research School, one of only two in the South West.
