The school is actively involved in several projects within the local community.
In 2007, the school's new state-of-the-art theatre was opened. As well as being used by the school, the Kings Theatre is used by Cheddar Arts, a community arts organisation based in the Cheddar Valley. The Kings Theatre has seating for an audience of 240 and is fully equipped to professional standards with seats raised for perfect viewing.
The operational and legal control of The Kings of Wessex Leisure Centre transferred across to the governing body of The Kings of Wessex Academy on 1st April 2009. Trading under the name Kings Fitness & Leisure, the centre has exceeded all expectations in delivering a successful leisure centre for the community.
