Welcome toWestcountry Schools Trust

Stronger together . . . every child in a great school Welcome to Westcountry Schools Trust (WeST); a family of schools formed around two clusters, each including primary schools and secondary schools.  Initially formed as a small Multi Academy Trust (MAT) of two schools in 2011, we were delighted when a further five schools and The Learning Institute (TLI) joined us in 2016.  When a neighbouring group of six schools expresse...

  •  Outdoor Learning Day!

    Outdoor Learning Day!

    While the Year 6 children had a day out today, the rest of the school had an outdoor learning day. The children worked together on a project based on 'The Lost Words' by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris. It is a stunning book  of art work and poetry with words that have been 'lost' and taken out of dictionary use. They are all nature words, which our children found horrifying. They went on a trail around the school grounds to find words and pictures, wrote group poems and used watercolours to re-create images from the book. It was fantastic to see such team work, respect and co-operation from children across the school. Please click here to see more photos.

    Bringing Histrory to life!

    KS2 linked their History to Beach School once again this week. The children made Viking longboats in groups in their classroom. Once down at the beach, we talked about Viking burials and how they were sent off with their possessions on longboats and were set alight. They believed that the smoke would speed up their journey to the afterlife. The children practised lighting small fires in teams first, then we set their boats alight! Finally we tested them in the sea to check that they would float. Please click here for more photos.
