Welcome to The Mead Academy Trust. We are an organisation characterised by optimism, excellence and creativity. We love to share good practice and to learn from and challenge each other.

Our Trust is comprised of three schools across four sites; The Mead at Hilperton, The Mead at Wingfield and Castle Mead School in Trowbridge, and River Mead School in Melksham. We are proud that all of our schools are rated ‘Good’, and are excellent providers for their diverse local communities. You can find out more about each individual school by clicking the relevant link below. 

Together we provide our children with a rich, creative and challenging primary curriculum. As CEO of The Mead Academy Trust I am proud to work with such vibrant and aspirational schools. We have expectations of excellence in all that we do – seeking a ‘golden thread’ through the many aspects of our work.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more, we would love to hear from you.

With best wishes
Lyssy Bolton
CEO, The Mead Academy Trust



While you are supporting your children to access their learning at home, we would love to see your photos. It might be joining a live lesson, or completing an activity on Seesaw – but it might also be some home baking, going for your daily exercise, joining in with Joe Wicks – or something else!

Show us what you are up to, and tell us about your #lockdownlearning, to inspire and support others, and join our virtual community for the next 6 weeks.

Post your photos with #LockdownLearning and tag us @themeadtrust
on twitter or Facebook and we will share them in our gallery.

Our vision and purpose
  • Shape inspirational learning
  • Encourage, support and develop every child so that they reach their full potential
