King Arthur's Community School is a smaller than average secondary school in Wincanton, Somerset, England. It had 460 students between the ages of 11 and 16 years in 2015.[1]

The Headteacher (Chris Beech) started at the school in September 2012 and an OFSTED report comments upon the significant changes that have taken place. In 2013 the students started to wear a new, blazer and tie uniform and the four Arthurian houses of Lancelot, Gawain, Percivale and Galahad were introduced to promote healthy competition.

The school has close links with its 8 partner primary schools through the Tower Learning Community - also including Sexeys secondary school. Their aim is to promote high quality learning throughout the area of South East Somerset.

The campus includes the community Sports Centre, West Hill Nursery and Somerset Skills for Learning.

The school has an excellent sporting tradition but also celebrates its close links with local business and partner FE providers in Yeovil and Strode.

The logo is linked to the Arthurian story of Excalibur. It is one of the best schools in the county with high grades.
