Welcome to the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy Southwell Campus
The Southwell Campus caters for children at Key stages One and Two (4 to 11 year olds) and was formerly Southwell Community Primary School before electing to join the Academy.
Southwell originally opened in 1979 on a pleasant open site with its own playing field, playground, car park and landscaped areas. Each set of classrooms having its own entrance, toilets and practical teaching areas for creative work. Every classroom is fully enclosed offering pupils ideal learning conditions.
We have a well-equipped gymnasium that is also used for assemblies and lunchtimes. There is also a library and a spacious learning centre.
For parents who need care for their children outside school hours, the Academy has the ‘Island Kids club’ (catering for ages 3 to 11 from anywhere on Portland) which runs on two of our sister campuses runs from 7.30-9.00am and 3.00-6.00pm, as well as in the school holidays. Please follow the Island Kids link to find out more.
The Head of Campus is Mr. Stuart McLeod.
