Bishop Henderson is a VC (Voluntary Controlled) Church of England primary school. We educate children from the age of 4-11 and have six classes of primary aged pupils plus a nursery. There are currently 158 pupils on roll. Our excellent nursery provides for children from the age of 2 years.
The school is part of Somerset Local Authority and adheres to their policies and guidelines.
Wells Community Learning Partnership
Our school is part of the Wells Community Learning Partnership which is made up of fifteen schools in Wells and the surrounding area. This is a very supportive network which provides valuable opportunities for children through access to a variety of activities and events, such as sports festival and tournaments. The Headteachers meet regularly to discuss common educational issues and make strategic plans for the benefit of the whole CLP. There are also increased opportunities for professional development for staff through shared staff meetings, in-service days and joint training events.
