The Stonehenge School is a small, mixed comprehensive school located in Amesbury, Wiltshire, England for children aged 11 to 16. It has 730 pupils on its roll. The headteacher is Nigel Roper who took over from Andy Packer in 2004. It's logo is an image of Stonehenge. It is divided into a Lower school and Upper school.


The site where the school stands was bought in 1938 for a Church of England secondary school that was never built. In 1958 a secondary school opened on the site. In 1960–1961 the school was enlarged. In 1974 the school was renamed The Stonehenge School, taking pupils aged 11 to 16.

An Upper School building and sports hall were built alongside the existing building in the 1970s.[1]
