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 2013, 93% of students in Year 11 achieved five or more A*-C grades, which compares very favourably with the national average of 68%, and 69% of students achieved five or more A*-C grades including English and Maths. 2013 also saw an A-level pass rate of 98%, and over a third of
all the A-level grades awarded were the top grades of A and A*.
Please take time to read the
welcome message from the Headteacher, Mr Chris Richardson.
