We are a nurturing primary school, enabling all our children to thrive and flourish, safe within our welcoming community.
Keevil CofE Academy is located in the picturesque village of Keevil, in the heart of the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. We serve the communities of Keevil, Steeple Ashton, Great Hinton and Bulkington, but our location close to Trowbridge, Westbury, Melksham and many other villages makes us easy to travel to from a wide area. We welcome children from across the area to become part of our community.
We want all our children to grow and flourish during their time with us, achieving both their academic and personal potential. We believe to help children realise all that they are capable of, they need to feel success in something. This could be in reading, swimming, drawing, or working well with others, to name a few. Through finding a child’s individual spark, their self-esteem and confidence grows, which supports their development and accomplishments in all areas. Our task in school is to find the way to help every child succeed.
We are a Church of England school, and our ethos is based on the story of the Good Samaritan, which teaches us to understand how someone reached out and gave all he could to someone to whom he could have turned his back. We are defined by the quote “Always treat others as you would like to be treated” Matthew 7:12. This is at the heart of everything we do in school.
We have six Keevil Characteristics which underpin all the learning we do in school. They glue our curriculum together, whether we are doing maths, PE or extra-curricular activities. They are: Resilience, Learning, Teamwork, Problem-Solving, Communication and Diligence. We believe that developing these in our children will help them to be successful with us, and as they move forwards in their lives.
We are a family school in every sense of the word. We ensure that every member of our community feels welcome and belongs. And you as parents, are key members of our family. We work in partnership with you to ensure the best outcomes for all children.
We joined the Acorn Education Trust in July 2016, as a way to build on and embed our success. Through this we have joined a community of schools that work together to ensure the very best for all the children that they serve.
If you would like to learn more about us or would like to visit, please get in touch with us to arrange this. All the information you need is on the Contacts page.
We always love welcoming new children and families into our community, to learn and grow with us.
Lindsey Hermon (Headteacher)

Our headteacher, Lindsey Hermon, is very happy to speak to you and/or arrange a time for an individual visit to the school.
We have places available across the school, and would love to welcome other children and families to join our community, to learn and grow with us.
