About this photo

Through the 1662 legacy of John Bentley, a free school was founded on The Green. A new grammar school was built on the site at Wessington in 1957, the first in the county of Wiltshire, with 360 places for boys and girls. It has grounds of about 35 acres, with splendid views of the Downs and the White Horse. It became a comprehensive in 1974, merging with the Fynamore Secondary Modern School. Further developments in the late 1990s, when the school became a single-site, have transformed this view.
