Westover Green Community School is a large, two form entry school situated in the town of Bridgwater.  The integrated Autism Centre opened in 2018 and caters for 14 children. The centre has state of the art facilities.

The school is part of the Clevedon Learning Trust. The Trust was launched in January 2015. At present the CLT is formed of ten schools in two geographical areas; one secondary and four primary schools in Clevedon and five primary schools in Bridgwater. The CLT brings with it a new, innovative and student focussed approach to education within local communities. The CLT will provide high quality education and experiences for children and families.  We will achieve this through our formal school partnership, using the most effective teaching and learning strategies, the best resources and facilities and the clearest progression routes for our children from the age of 0 to 18.
