Welcome to the website of The Kings of Wessex Academy
As one of the leading schools in the South West, The Kings of Wessex Academy strives to provide a first class education for
all. We have high expectations of our students and work hard to provide the opportunities and support needed to enable them
to reach their full potential.
In 2012, 91% of students in Year 11 achieved five or more A*-C grades, which compares very favourably with the national average of 69%.
65% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and Maths. 2012 also saw the A-level pass rate rise again to an impressive 99%, and a
quarter of all the A-level grades awarded were the top grades of A and A*.
The school's specialism is technology, which means that we are able to provide our students with state-of-the-art IT
facilities and enhanced opportunities in Science, Mathematics and Design Technology.
