Welcome to the West Somerset College website
I am very pleased to welcome you to the West Somerset College website. Our website aims to offer you a wealth of information about our vision for the future and our many successes and achievements.
At West Somerset College we have an exceptional team of dedicated staff who provide an inspiring and supportive learning environment. As educators our core purpose is to ensure that every student is challenged to realise their full potential and encouraged to be aspirational in their choices for the future.
We have high expectations of our students; we expect them to work hard, develop resilience, perform academically and flourish into young people who are fully equipped for further education or the world of work. West Somerset College students are purposeful, polite and we are very proud of them all.
At West Somerset College we:
1. are aspirational for our students’ achievements. We demonstrate this by setting aspirational achievement targets and having a relentless focus on academic achievement.
2. recognise achievement in all its forms and we strive for continuous self-improvement as the key to future success for us all. We demonstrate this by celebrating students’ successes within and outside of school and we support our teachers to always become better by investing in training and support.
3. positive attitudes and excellent behaviour exist in all our classrooms and learning spaces. We demonstrate this by robustly applying our behaviour policy and holding those who choose to misbehave accountable for their actions.
I hope that this website provides you with a flavour of life at West Somerset College. If you wish for any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
