Message from the Headteacher

At Malmesbury School our vision is to be a happy, caring and excellent community. We are proud to be a truly comprehensive school providing an education of the highest quality for all the students within Malmesbury and the surrounding area.

In the last Ofsted inspection in May 2012, the inspectors found that in all areas the school is ‘Outstanding’. One parental comment summarises what many others say; ‘This is a wonderful school. It nurtures, cares and educates the children’. The inspector reported that; “Relationships are excellent and high levels of respect are apparent between students and staff”. After observing many lessons they also found that “The quality of teaching is remarkably high because of high expectations of leaders and teachers of themselves”.

In August 2011 we converted to become a ‘New style academy’, in July 2013 we were awarded National Support School status and in September 2014 we became a Teaching School and established the Avon Teaching School Alliance. In March 2015 we established the Athelstan Multi-Academy Trust when we became the sponsor of The Dean Academy in Gloucestershire.

We hope that you will be able to spare some time to learn more about Malmesbury School from our website and to link into the interactive aspects of our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). We would be delighted to welcome you to our school if you would like to come and visit us.

Rupert Moreton, Headteacher
