Court Fields School is located in Wellington, Somerset, England. The school teaches 775 students from 11 to 16 as of January 2012, and does not contain a sixth form.[1]

Since 2005, major developments have occurred. A new block was built for the teaching of Humanities and a sports complex has been constructed in place of the old tennis courts.

The Head Teacher between 2001 and 2013 was Elaine Faull. She followed Maurice Hicks, who left the school in 2001 and is now the head of Holyrood Academy in Chard.

In January 2013, the school was placed into special measures by Ofsted,[2] following an inspection in November 2012 that rated the school as inadequate on a four point scale of outstanding, good, satisfactory, and inadequate.

The school became a Sponsored Academy from January 2014 in partnership with The Castle School, Taunton.[3] The Head of Castle School, Sarah Watson will be the Executive Head of both schools and Deputy Head, Rachel Bennett is the temporary Head of School from September 2013.

As of June 2014, Rachael Bennett has been appointed as the Headteacher of Court Fields School.
