Welcome to The Mendip School, part of The Partnership Trust.

We are committed to and passionate about the learning and progress of our pupils. Staff and governors have high aspirations for our children and we aim to provide a high quality, relevant and balanced education for all. There is a happy and positive atmosphere in which children can fulfil their potential and grow in self-confidence with respect for the people and environment around them. Our aim is for our young people to be successful, happy and prepared for their lives beyond school.

We are now crowdfunding to help our KS4 and Sixth Form pupils take part in The Wettest Classroom.  Read all about it and support our pupils by clicking here!!

The Wettest Classroom project will be an inspirational journey on two sailing ships around the coast of Great Britain. The voyage takes place in July 2019 and the students will work as a part of a team to sail the ship, living and working on board for seven days and nights. This will be the experience of a lifetime and our students need your support to make it happen.


The students wrote a letter of application detailing why they should be selected for the journey. The applications were accepted and so they were invited to attend an assessment in Snowdonia. They participated in swimming, kayaking, orienteering, camping and paddle-boarding activities alongside other students from across the country. Pupils displayed a number of different skills across the week such as resilience, teamwork, social skills, determination and following instructions. They were then selected to join the final crew for a leg of the journey around Great Britain.

We believe that all our students are special and deserve a chance to be challenged and achieve more than anyone, including themselves thought possible.
