Welcome to Selwood Academy. We are an Anglican / Methodist Foundation Middle school serving the needs of children aged 9 - 13 in years 5 – 8 and sit at the heart of the community of Frome.
As a school, our vision is to allow our whole community to “let your light shine before others.” This is underpinned by our Christian values of Hope, Wisdom, Community and Joy. Every act and decision that we undertake has this in mind
The children at Selwood Academy are a delight and they make coming to school exciting and enriching every day. As Headteacher, I feel very blessed to lead, develop and share their love of learning alongside our dedicated staff team.
At Selwood we are committed to creating a safe, happy and enriching environment where we all aspire to thrive, achieve and celebrate success together. Our aim is to promote the dignity and well-being of every child and staff member and ensure they flourish in the course of their journey with us.
Our Christian foundations ensure that we value each child as unique and special and we dedicate ourselves to ensuring that our children are loved, cared for, challenged and given every opportunity to fulfil their god given potential.
We know our children well and they are proud to share their school with all who visit. We have a very special uniqueness to our Ethos from the moment people step through our doors.
