About the School and Nursery

After some public consultation the new school has been named "Willowdown Primary Academy & Nursery".   It will will opening for its first pupils on Tuesday 2nd September 2014.  

The Principal says, "I'd like to thank everyone who submitted suggestions about the name, there were some brilliant ideas. It's really refreshing the local community wanted to get involved and play a key role in the development of the school."

He is keen to speak to people in the area about the plans for the new school.  You can contact him through the school's Facebook and Twitter pages or by emailing info@newprimaryacademynebridgwater.org.

The school will open with 150 pupils from Reception to Year 4 and a 24-place nursery, with plans to expand to include Year 5 and 6 in the future. Willowdown Primary Academy is still accepting applications from parents for new students.

Collaborative Academies Trust (CAT) has been appointed by Somerset County Council/the Secretary of State for Education to run the new school.  CAT runs other schools in this area.  You can find out more information about it from its website.
