Nailsea School is a happy and vibrant learning community with students aged from 11 to 18. We are immensely proud of our school and the way in which every member of staff genuinely cares for the well-being and development of all of our young people.

We understand the importance of providing the best possible education for all of our students and are committed to ensuring each child is given the right amount of support and challenge to be able to accomplish their personal best, regardless of ability or background. Our dedicated teachers enjoy teaching and bringing learning to life, and make the learning experience for our students an enjoyable one. 

Our extra curricular activities are just as important as academic studies, and we actively encourage our students to get involved in as many clubs and competitions as possible. We know that this helps them to become better learners and to develop lifelong skills. 

As Headteacher I believe it is important to reward effort, hard work and achievement, and to celebrate the individual differences and interests of our students. We regularly celebrate student success in assemblies and via the school newsletter and website.

To discover the fantastic opportunities that Nailsea School can offer your child, please arrange to come and visit us.  I look forward to meeting you.

Chris Wade - Headteacher

      Nailsea School’s new Literacy Ambassadors carried out their first assignment on 6 March by taking part in a Skype reading session with our partner school in Ankleswhar, India to celebrate World Book Day. Stories were read very clearly by our students and had been chosen to reflect a moral and a global sensibility, so Aesop’s fables were very suitable and well received by our Indian partner students. Phoebe and Megan performed a very graceful ballet dance demonstrating their excellent pointe work. We were treated to a puppet display and dramatic story telling by the students in India.
