History

Our present school has been here since 1972 when it was built to accommodate the growing population of Wells. Central School, as it was then known when it was in Southover, was a small Victorian building, the move to the present site gave the children three playing fields, a conservation area with stream and ponds and two large areas of hard standing playground.

The Head at the time Arnold Downs, planted many native trees around the site to alleviate the problems of flooding from the local stream, hence the many mature trees on the site giving a variety of habitats for the children to enjoy.

Since then the farm area has been developed, with a flourishing Garden Club and a new Adventure playground has been installed. To celebrate the Queens Jubilee a small orchard of Plums and Apples, sponsored by parents and friends of the school was planted and have produced some good crops of apples this year.

Further plans are to enhance the pond area with a bird hide and to build an African mud hut, such as those found in our link school in Karujubu, Uganda
