Wyedean School Beachley Rd Sedbury NP16 7AA
Wyedean School, overlooking the Welsh border near Chepstow, is a popular, oversubscribed school in the area, drawing students both from Gloucestershire and Wales. The school opened on its present site in 1976 and grew to around 1250 students with a very successful Sixth Form of around 300. In 2011 the school became a stand-alone academy convertor but still continued to work closely with its networks in the Forest of Dean, Monmouthshire and Gloucestershire. Wyedean School has always been very heavily engaged with the local community ensuring a very strong relationship supporting parents & carers as well as community groups. The catchment area for the school is truly comprehensive with areas of high affluence, social housing and the local army base, the home of 1st Rifles battalion. The school prides itself on the calm and purposeful learning atmosphere around the campus as a key feature of the “Wyedean Way”.
