About West Somerset College
Bridgwater College Trust is a Multi Academy Trust supporting Bridgwater College Academy, Brymore Academy, Hamp Academy, Otterhampton Primary School and West Somerset College.
The West Somerset Community College is the only secondary school serving the district of West Somerset. Our 660 square kilometers catchment area includes two-thirds of the Exmoor National Park and part of the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as the coastal towns of Minehead and Watchet. This is a sparsely-populated rural area, with obvious attractions to lovers of the countryside and outdoor activities.
