We would like to extend a warm welcome to all children, their parents, carers, families, friends and members of the local community who are central to the life of Danesfield Church of England Middle School.
Danesfield Church of England School was built in 1959 and named Williton County Secondary Modern. The original school was built to serve the local towns of Williton, Watchet and Washford. These communities remain at the heart of the school, but increasingly Danesfield serves a much wider area.
We want to support our pupils and their families in helping children reach their potential.
Our School offers a happy environment for children that aims to promote learning, hard work, initiative, self-discipline and responsibility, both within the School and the wider community. We value gentleness and humility, we appreciate good manners and we embrace traditional values. We respect individuality and the development of good character is regarded as highly as achievement.
We are very proud of the School and its successes over the years, whether they are academic, sporting, musical or in drama and the arts. We hope we may be able to welcome you and your child to the School and together we can embark on the partnership that will lay the foundations of your child’s future success.
We hope that our website provides you with a flavour of what our school has to offer you and your child. If you have not already done so, we would encourage you to come and visit us to find out more by having a tour of our buildings and talking to our staff and children.
Appointments can be made through the school office.
We look forward to a continued happy and successful relationship with you over the coming years.
The Widow's Gift
"Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts but a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins worth only a few cents.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said "Truly I tell you this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth but she, out of her poverty, put in everything - all she had to live on."
