Headteacher's Welcome

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to The Blue School website. The Blue is a remarkable school. Our school is built around our collective community of wonderful individuals, working toward a shared vision. That makes our school a vibrant and exciting place to study and work.

The Blue has served the City of Wells and its surrounding communities since 1641. That history is important to us. It creates an exceptionally strong common ethos that binds generations of families, all of whom have passed through the school. Our core values – respect, empathy, politeness – have been fundamental to the school for over three centuries and continue to serve our community well.

Building on our status as a Research School, we have established ourselves as a centre of excellence for teaching. Our broad, creative curriculum strives to give our students a social and academic belonging. Combining close, personal pastoral care, with high academic standards, our students develop the wide range of skills necessary to thrive in the modern world and lead a physically, mentally and spiritually healthy life.

We are proud to be a Church school and believe that this supports the emphasis on our core values for all our students.  Developing a community belonging for students of a Christian or non-Christian faith, and for those of no faith, remains very important to us.

I hope that our website gives you a flavour of life at The Blue. Please do contact us if you wish to find out more about studying or working at our school.

Mark Woodlock, Headteacher
