Mendip@Ansford Academy

Welcome to the Mendip@Ansford Academy page.


We are situated at Ansford Academy, Castle Cary. We are a provision for supporting students through a mainstream secondary education with our focus on qualifications and independence. Some students have come from The Mendip School and others have come to us from other schools around the local area. Each student receives a personalised support package and adapted timetable. Students are supported by The Mendip School’s experienced teaching assistants and work alongside Ansford students and staff. We currently have 3 pupils accessing the provision.
