West Somerset Community College


West Somerset Community College

West Somerset Community College (sometimes abbreviated to WSCC) is a fairly large comprehensive school in Minehead, Somerset, England. It provides education for students aged 13–16 (school years 9–11) in the main school and 16-18 (school years 12–13) in the sixth form (West Somerset uses a three-tier school system). WSCC has had Technology College status for several years, meaning the College receives additional funding.

The College recently gained a good Ofsted report, which stated that the College had 'a significant number of outstanding features' and most were 'good'.
