Clevedon Learning Trust

Yatton Free School

The Clevedon Learning Trust has successfully applied to run the new primary school being built at North End in Yatton. John Wells (CEO) says “We are delighted to have the opportunity to serve the local community and open a brand new school”.  

The school is due to open September 2020 and will grow to 210 pupils, with scope to increase its capacity to meet future demand from local housing development. The school also has the facility for Nursery provision. 

John Wells explained that the school “will be a creative and innovative place of learning where children will be encouraged to be as successful as they can be in all that they do. We want the pupils to develop lively and enquiring minds and to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to a fast changing world. We are eager to work in partnership with families and the local community to support the children, enabling them to develop and flourish, fulfilling their potential at school and in life as good citizens.”  

The Trust is uniquely placed to provide the best possible start and continued success of the new school. In September 2017, it successfully opened the new Northgate Primary School and Nursery in Bridgwater. The Clevedon Learning Trust is a thriving family of primary and secondary schools situated in North Somerset and Somerset.  

John Wells commented “The strength of our Trust is our ability to work as a family of schools who are connected by shared values and our relentless focus on delivering an excellent education to every child in every school. Being a part of our wider Trust family provides individual support and guidance for our schools. “ 

The Clevedon Learning Trust are holding a consultation event for the local community to come and see what the school design and layout is and will have the opportunity to ask questions about admissions and opening. The Trust will be reviewing whether to open more classes than just Reception, for example Year 1/2 and/or Year 3/4.  

The event will be held on Thursday 6th June 2019 at Horsecastle Chappell, Yatton between 2.00pm and 8.00pm. For further information please see the Clevedon Learning Trust website on www.clevedonlearningtrust.org.uk on the Schools page: Yatton Free School.
