We are passionate and committed to ensuring our curriculum is engaging and inspiring, working towards high levels of creativity and innovation in our teaching and learning across the school. Our ultimate aim is to provide students with access to a broad range of experiences and challenges so that every student reaches their full potential.



Devizes School is a successful and forward thinking school with a reputation for strong discipline and high quality education. Our latest Ofsted report in 2015 highlighted many very positive features and, for the fourth inspection in a row, rated the school as ‘Good’ in every category.
