The Blue School is situated at the foot of the Mendip Hills on the northern edge of the City of Wells, with views across its playing fields towards the Cathedral, St Cuthbert's Church and Glastonbury Tor.  The current buildings were originally two separate schools built between the 1950s and 1960s, but in the 1970 these were merged to form a single campus for The Blue School.  Following completion of the Sports Centre in 1999 the Science Block extension in 2005 and Barkham Classrooms in 2012, associated remodelling of the whole campus has enabled us to provide the following outstanding facilities for our students:-
