Increase in Numbers at Nailsea School 

By Fiona Davies – Nailsea School

Nailsea School has seen a dramatic increase in the number of applications it has received for a place in Year 7 at the start of the 2022 school year. The school has been requested by North Somerset Council to increase its PAN (Published Admission Number) to 220 places to meet the surge in demand, and this year’s application figures have exceeded expectations.  

Nailsea School goes from strength to strength with structural changes to the staffing body including the appointment of a Deputy Headteacher. The increase in admission figures is attributed to the schools nurturing approach, focusing on achievement for all, working with students, parents and the community to build aspirations and rewarding successes throughout the school at all levels.  

Headteacher Dee Elliott said: 

“We are looking forward to meeting the newest members of Team Nailsea, to welcoming them along to our community and helping them develop and reach their aspirations. It is an exciting time for the school as we move out of the confinement of Covid-19 restrictions and continue our progress.”

The school joined the Wessex Learning Trust in 2021, which has created further opportunity for shared learning and best practice opportunities.
