Welcome to King Arthur's School


Mr C Beech

A warm welcome to King Arthur’s Community School. We serve the beautiful, historic town of Wincanton and its surrounding villages. The school’s motto of RESPECT, PRIDE and COURAGE was developed by students after researching the legends of King Arthur and underpins how we work as a community of learners.


Our vision and mission statement below have been developed by students, staff and governors giving a clear view of what matters to us.

If you are a prospective parent who would like to tour the school please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to welcome you to our school.
