About The John Bentley School
Thank you for visiting our employer profile. We hope you’ll enjoy learning more about the excellent opportunities for teaching at The John Bentley School and living in the nearby area.
The John Bentley School is a community-focused Academy set in the heart of stunning Wiltshire countryside in the historic town of Calne.
We are committed to ensuring every student achieves more than they ever thought possible through a dedicated team of teaching and support staff who provide students with an inspirational learning environment.
Ofsted recognised us as “Good in every category” in June 2013, finding that our students make good progress and achieve well because we meet the needs of all our students effectively.
The school has superb facilities which include: 13 Science Labs, a Design and Technology com-plex, digital media centre and the latest computer-aided design and ICT facilities.
Sport is important at John Bentley and we enjoy a sports hall, gymnasium, tennis courts and 33 acres of sports fields, as well as the use of the neighbouring ‘Calne Leisure’ Centre.
The Arts are supported with Art and Design studios, a photography dark room and processing fa-cilities, fully equipped Drama studios and three purpose-built music rooms with practice rooms for instrumental tuition.
We also have a cafeteria with outdoor covered eating area, gardens, an on-site nursery (babies to pre-school) and a purpose-built Sixth Form Centre.
Our Campus is set on the edge of town, with views across the beautiful rolling Wiltshire countryside.
Calne offers a great rural quality of life but is not far from other nearby towns and the M4, giving easy access to Bristol and to the South West. Wiltshire is home to the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge and boasts many other sites of historical interest.
Calne is some 19 miles east of Bath, 6 miles east of Chippenham, 13 miles west of Marlborough and 16 miles south west of Swindon.
