Leigh School logo

Leigh School Leigh On Mendip

The Governors and Senior Leadership team are excited to inform you the planning has been obtained for the building of a final classroom which will enable the school to provide a fully functional Primary School.

This has been the culmination of many years work to achieve with the help of Midsomer Norton Partnership Schools and will ensure a sustainable and progressive village school enjoyed already by many children, with more to transit through to their future senior education.

Building work is scheduled to start on the 24th May 2021 for an estimated 18 weeks.. As a result there may be some disruption of traffic and parking however the contractors have assured us that they will keep this to a minimum.

Should anyone in the Parish want to seek further information or discuss this please contact either of the school Governors listed below.
