Schools

We are very proud to have three excellent schools here all of whom have recently been awarded ‘OUTSTANDING’ by OFSTED. This has been achieved by not only the hard work of the teachers, but also the pupils.

The three state schools in the area are: Backwell Comprehensive, Backwell Junior School and West Leigh Infants School.

The school is positioned close to the local church, allowing us to work in close partnership to provide an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.

Backwell C of E Junior School is friendly and welcoming, caring greatly for the needs of both our pupils and staff. We have earned the Investors in People mark and have recently been awarded Healthy Schools Status.

West Leigh Infants School

West Leigh Infants School

The school was opened in 1969 having been built as an open plan school. Building works over the Summer of 2003 and 2005 resulted in substantially enhanced classroom accommodation.

There are four remodelled classrooms and two new classrooms, one of which is being used as a stimulating library. The school has a large hall with modern P.E equipment. It has pleasant grounds including a small field and a millennium flower garden made with the help of the parents and children. There is a school kitchen, which provides hot lunches for the children.
