Hundreds of students showed off their new-look uniforms on Tuesday (September 4th) as King Alfred School in Highbridge implemented the latest of its ongoing improvements.

New Year 7 students enjoyed their first day at King Alfred School, wearing their brand new uniforms of a tie and blazer.

Hundreds more students across the school were also wearing the new tie and blazer uniform, with more than 800 sold over the summer.

New Principal Nathan Jenkins told “It was wonderful to see the new students all proudly wearing their new uniform.”

“These are very exciting days for all involved with King Alfred School. We have lots of plans to become one of the best schools in the region.”

“This year our exam results were much improved and we want to build on that success as we move forward.”

“We want the school to be at the heart of the community and we want the community to be an active part of the school.”

“Working together, we can ensure that all the young people of our community have the very best education and opportunities for success.”

The school formally becomes part of The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT) on 1st October after a year of being supported by the multi-academy trust.

In recent months the school has seen much improved GCSE results, an encouraging Ofsted visit, and several positive site improvements, with £1.2 million being given by the Government.
