About this School

Writhlington School is a secondary school for pupils aged 11-18, located in Radstock, near Bath. The school is interested in working on energy, health, fitness and weather.

Writhlington School has specialist status as a Business and Enterprise College and is the main secondary school in the Radstock area. The school became an academy in October 2011. The school has 1,537 pupils in both compulsory and sixth form education. The school is notable for its orchid project, which has won numerous awards including a gold medal at the 2009 Chelsea Flower Show. The school has also won awards in business with their enterprise companies. It is one of the few state schools to have its own non-compulsory Combined Cadet Force (CCF) with over 150 students involved from years 9 to 13. A turf-cutting ceremony was held at the start of a major rebuilding programme funded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) as part of the Building Schools for the Future programme. The British Council for School Environments, an education charity which pioneers and supports the creation of effective and efficient learning environments, declared the Writhlington School project as Winner of the Excellence in Design for Teaching and Learning: Secondary New Build and Winner of the Badge in Excellence in Design for Virtual Learning.
