Join Our Talent Pool


Welcome to Widcombe Infant School. Our aim is to provide an excellent education for individual children. It is fundamental that children are happy and secure at school, so that effective learning can take place within a positive, stimulating environment. Each child is treated as an individual with their unique personality, talents and needs recognised. A mixture of teaching styles is used. The children learn as a whole class, in groups and as individuals to ensure they progress and reach their potential.


About Us


We are a small school located in Bath near to the city centre. We are a mixed infant community school with ages from 4 -7 years. The school consists of 6 classes; two in Reception, two in Year 1 and two in Year 2, totalling 180 children. All classes are kept to 30 children and the number of hours per week of lesson time is 21 hours. The school serves mainly the community of Widcombe but also draws pupils from a wider area, and our intake of pupils represents a breadth of social, economic and academic backgrounds. At present 70% of the pupils are White British, 7% are Pupil Premium pupils, 23% have English as an additional language and 7% are on the SEND register, including 3 children with Educational, Health and Care plans and 3 children with Transition Funding. Our Pupil Premium (additional income provided for the children entitled to free school meals, children from families in the Services and for Looked After Children) is used to support small group work and individual work to ensure these children are not disadvantaged.

Our Trust

Palladian Academy Trust is a strong Trust based in Bath and Wiltshire that offers education from 4-19. We are proud that our schools serve different communities, some are church schools, some are non-denominational, but together we know we are better placed to ensure our pupils have the best educational experience.

The Trust was established in 2016 and is named after a local landmark, The Palladian Bridge in Prior Park, a symbol of connection and unity.

As a Trust, we know that each of our schools has its own distinctiveness and each one brings different strengths as an equal partner. While we recognise what each school has to offer individually, we also work together at the same time, to maximise the benefits of being part of a larger network and organisation. Being part of a Trust gives our colleagues access to high quality professional development opportunities, gives our pupils the chance to interact with others from different schools and provides challenge and support to Trust and school leaders through effective governance.
