Minehead First School Making sure school matters to every child


Welcome to Minehead First School, part of Beacon Education


A personal message from Gemma Chapman, Head of School 


Welcome to Minehead First School. We are a two-form entry school based on the edge of Exmoor, in the coastal town of Minehead and form part of Beacon Education. We cater for children aged 3-9 years, with our own Pre School onsite.  


We are proud of the welcoming and friendly atmosphere of the school, where children work co-operatively to achieve the very best they possibly can, in all areas of the curriculum. Our curriculum reflects and draws upon our unique locality to ensure the children have a strong knowledge of their local area and also equips them to understand and adventure into the wider world. 


The size of our school means we can create an individual, caring environment whilst being large enough to offer a broad and balanced curriculum and a full programme of extracurricular activities. We are proud of the facilities that we have to offer, including a large sports field, swimming pool, art studio, computer suite and library. We offer breakfast and afterschool clubs, in addition to an exciting range of other clubs.  


We hope this website is a useful introduction to the school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us or, better still, come and see us at work during a school day. The staff, children and I will be very pleased to welcome you. To arrange a visit please telephone or email the school and we will be happy to organise this for you.
