Buckler's Mead Academy

<p>Buckler’s Mead Academy recently celebrated its 55th Anniversary and is looking forward to the next 55 years from a position of great strength and with ambitious plans.</p>
<p>Buckler’s Mead Academy was originally established in 1957 as Buckler’s Mead School, becoming Buckler’s Mead Community School in 1990 to reflect our commitment to our local community.  We were the first technology college in Somerset in 1996.</p>
<p>In 2011 the school became Buckler’s Mead Academy.  Along with a new identity and revised leadership, came a strong ethos of the highest expectations for student learning and progress.</p>
<p>Today, the academy offers 11 – 16 year old students a challenging curriculum in a calm, well-ordered community.  We are known for our high standards of teaching and our focus on student achievement.</p>
<p>At Buckler’s Mead we have a deeply founded belief that by appointing top quality staff and training and supporting them fully we are able to provide the very best education for our students.  We are a seven times’ Investor in People – unique in Somerset – and are very proud of the quality of our staff and what they do for the students.</p>
<p>We’ve invested almost £1.5 million in our premises in the last two years, with improved access, full double glazing, enhanced ICT facilities, new toilets, more study areas and an extended entrance. We are looking forward to starting the next phase this summer.</p>
<h2>Sports Development Project<strong></strong></h2>
<p>We have almost completed our £2million Sports Development Project in association with the English FA, who wish Buckler’s Mead to become a “Centre of Excellence”.  This started in October 2009 when a fantastic new floodlit all weather pitch was opened, with subsequent phases of the project including multi surface play areas, new fitness studio, new pitches etc.  Our link with the English FA provides a Centre of Excellence, not just for football but for sport in the Yeovil area.</p>
<h2>Educating with care to encourage success</h2>
<p>Our students are at the heart of everything we do at Buckler’s Mead Academy.  We treat all our students as individuals, setting targets and tracking progress to help our students achieve their very best.</p>
<p>Our focus is on giving students a complete learning experience, so that they leave Buckler’s Mead as happy, confident, knowledgeable young people.  In order to achieve this, our teachers must play their part in providing a stimulating and challenging environment for every student.</p>
