Wansdyke School is a vibrant school which is committed to continually raising standards and achieving excellence through providing exciting and memorable learning opportunities for every child.  In our most recent inspection, we were graded as good.  We have fantastic children and an engaged school community.  Located on the outskirts of the market town of Devizes, Wansdyke School is a thriving academy, within the Acorn Education Trust.  Situated in the heart of beautiful, rural Wiltshire, Devizes has excellent access to routes to Chippenham, Swindon and the M4 to the north, and the A303/M3 to the south.  

Wansdyke School is a single form entry primary school with a 20 place Complex Needs Resource Base, so we have 230 pupils on roll.  We have no mixed aged classes and our maximum class size is 30 pupils.  The resource base brings an atmosphere of inclusion and tolerance and we are very proud they are a part of our school.  At Wansdyke we aim to encourage all our children to achieve their fullest potential, not only in what they learn in the classroom, but across the whole spectrum of school life. We aspire to enable all children at Wansdyke to make outstanding progress and leave the school at least the national expectation in Reading, Writing and Maths. In the Complex Needs Resource Base we aim for outstanding progress against the upper quartile targets in the progression guidance.  As the most recent academy to join the Acorn Education Trust, we are excited by the prospect of working collaboratively to provide exciting opportunities to improve local education.
