The Mendip School is Officailly Open!

On Wednesday 17th May, The Mendip School was officially opened by Michael Eavis CBE.  Over 200 people attended the event which showcased the tremendous facilities on offer to pupils, as well as demonstrate the strong community links already forged with local business and sports enterprises such as Bath Rugby, Yeovil Town FC, JosKos and Divoky Riding School.

Staff and parents mingled alongside eachother and invited guests whilst pupils of the school helped to raise funds by manning craft stalls and providing guided tours.  The Friends of Mendip School were also in full support.

More information about the official opening can be found on the DKA website.  DKA are the architects responsible for the design and project management of the school building.

A massive thank you to everyone involved.  It was a super day!

 

Lambs come to The Mendip School.

As an Easter treat, members of the Doulting farming community worked with staff at The Mendip School to provide students with an opportunity to meet some of their new born Lambs today.  All pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience, with some even prepared to get their hands (and clothes) dirty!
