Being an active part of a community is an important step in belonging to the world today.
The Village Community
Baydon is a thriving village in the north of Wiltshire. Our school has strong links with the local Church and this can be seen at the annual summer Baydon Church and School Fete. We welcome links with village members and enjoy Open the Book sessions when members of the church visit the school weekly and act out bible stories for the whole school in an interactive and thought provoking way.
Baydon school contributes to the Baydon Scene which is a regular village magazine. The latest edition can be viewed on the village website.
Links with Local Schools
We work closely with other schools in the MAEP (Marlborough Area Education Partnership) and through this collaboration pupils are able to work with others in a range of different areas, from school councils talking about healthy eating to music drumming workshops.
We are part of the newly formed Excalibur Teaching School Alliance which brings together secondary and primary schools across the region to work on areas such as School-led Initial Teacher training (starting in September 2017), research and development and School-to-school support.

Baydon school has worked with several universities and have welcomed students on teaching placements from Bath Spa University and Winchester . Students that have worked at Baydon have gone on to be successfully employed across the UK.
