Royal Wootton Bassett Academy is a very successful and very proud 11-18 school with 1,762 students on roll including 322 students in our very popular and successful Sixth Form. Royal Wootton Bassett has appeared in The Times Top 20 Secondary Schools in the South West. It is geographically situated in a pleasant location with Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds all within commuting distance.
In December 2010, the school was awarded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted. They described our students as “…an absolute delight.” and “in every area of the School they carry out exemplary practice.” In November 2013, the Academy was again awarded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted where they stated “Around the school, students are polite and courteous to each other, to members of staff and to visitors. Students listen attentively in lessons, and almost always respond rapidly to teachers’ instructions”. As far as we are aware, Royal Wootton Bassett is the only school in the country to be awarded this prestigious accolade in succession.
