Huish Academy


From the Principal


Having the responsibility of educating other people's children is a privilege, bringing with it the challenging opportunity of providing the best all-round education possible as we aim to prepare young people for long term happiness and success in their adult lives.

At Huish Episcopi Academy we take the responsibility placed in us extremely seriously. We are proud to offer a nurturing and encouraging community where we care about the individual student and support them to thrive in a warm and caring community in which all our students feel valued.

We live in fast changing times and this means that providing an outstanding, progressive and well-rounded education is more important than ever. Of course examination results matter and at Huish Episcopi our students consistently achieve good results in all areas of the curriculum, giving them access to apprenticeships, employment or university. Our ethos is one of hard work in a supportive environment. However, this is just one aspect of a Huish Episcopi education and pupils are also supported and encouraged to show ambition and aspiration both within and beyond the classroom.

We believe that school should be safe and fun, as we understand that happy children who feel secure are more likely to be successful.  We see it as our responsibility to nurture and develop our students' talents; to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities and character. To do this we aim to foster confidence, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; to develop strong communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-minded and outward-looking mentality so that they are ready to make a positive contribution to their wider community.

Best wishes

Chris Wade
