Springmead School

About Our School

Welcome to Springmead School. Founded in 2002 by Madeleine and Stephen Taylor and Jacqueline Beardsley, it has since provided a nurturing and inspiring learning environment. 

An award-winning co-educational independent preparatory school and nursery, we cater for children from 3 to 11 years. 

Situated in the beautiful village of Beckington, near Frome, on the Wiltshire – Somerset border, our vision is to ignite a passion for learning and for life. This happens every day through exciting, engaging lessons and also through the wide range of enrichment activities children experience over the year such as various lunchtime and after school clubs, subject enrichment days, annual productions and class performances, the Annual Science Fair, residential, bushcraft and school trips.

As a testament to our commitment to holistic approach to learning, in 2018 we won the National ISA Award for Excellence in Extra-Curricular Activities. 

Open Days

At Springmead every day is an open day and we welcome you to visit the school. We feel that it is important to give you a personal experience when visiting and where we can spend time answering your questions.
