The school is situated 8 miles south of Bristol between the villages of Chew Magna and Chew Stoke. It stands on a 30-acre site in open countryside overlooking Chew Valley Lake. The school buildings are surrounded by very pleasant grounds and landscaped gardens.
The school buildings were largely completed in four stages and the school is now well equipped with specialist rooms for all subjects. ICT facilities are well developed and three new science labs are equipped with state of the art technology.
Our success in achieving Arts College status has brought much needed improvements to our facilities for drama and music.A lottery grant has enabled us to build a new gymnasium and an all-weather pitch for school and community use. 2009 saw the addition of new Sixth Form and Art buildings.
Most pupils at the school come from the 120 square miles of the Chew Valley. The Local Education Authority has set an Admission Number of 196. The school is regularly over-subscribed and so it is anticipated that the majority of the school’s intake will live within the school’s area of prime responsibility.
