Melksham Oak Community School is a mixed secondary school and sixth form located in Melksham, Wiltshire, for students aged 11 to 18.


Opened on 12 July 2010, it was created under the Building Schools for the Future programme. [1] to replace The George Ward Technology College which was deemed inadequate by Ofsted.

Previously a community school administered by Wiltshire Council, Melksham Oak Community School converted to academy status in April 2015. However the school continues to coordiate with Wiltshire Council for admissions.
