Headteacher's welcome


Welcome to our website where I hope you get a sense of the vibrancy of The Corsham School, the superb education we give to every student and the wider opportunities we provide.  The best way to find out more about what we offer is to come and see for yourself.  Visitors are always welcome and we will be happy to show you around should you wish to pay us a visit.

The Corsham School is an 11-18 comprehensive academy with just over 1100 students on roll.  We are part of the Corsham School Academy Group Trust which currently consists of us and the Corsham Regis Primary Academy.  We are situated in the beautiful Wiltshire market town of Corsham, within easy reach of Chippenham and Bath, and draw our students from within the town and its many surrounding villages.

We are extremely proud of our school and the high quality of education we provide. We have high expectations and insist on high standards for all students. Students are taught to have an excellent attitude to learning and to behave in a way which shows respect to themselves and others.

Our excellent academic reputation is a great source of pride; however, our emphasis on developing the whole person is a fundamental part of the education we provide. As a school, we promote individuality, independence, and creativity. We aim to continue to be at the forefront of digital learning. We emphasise social, cultural, moral and spiritual development and we pride ourselves on developing responsible, tolerant, global 21st century citizens. 

We believe that school should be a happy place, students should enjoy learning; and teachers enjoy teaching. We believe that school is a place where you can make mistakes and learn from them and where kindness and good manners are as important as academic success. We are incredibly proud of the achievement and aspiration of our students; the way that our students throw themselves into the vast selection of extra-curricular opportunities; the way that they look after each other; and their positive attitude to learning and exemplary behaviour.

Students leave us to take their place in an ever-changing world and we make sure they are as prepared as possible for all the challenges they will face.  The majority of our students stay with us into our 6th Form before progressing on to University with many going on to top universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

Our staff are highly committed, innovative professionals.  Relationships between staff and students are exceptionally strong and this ethos is built on trust and confidence underpinned by the support of our wonderful families.

We are ambitious.  We aim to maximise everyone’s potential as we continually strive to develop this school to be the best of the best. We will not stop our programme of continuous improvement.

If you wish to be part of our success as a parent, student, employee or local community member please do not hesitate to get in touch to find out more.

Yours sincerely,

Rod Bell
