‘Making a difference… every day!’
Some of the first questions we are asked when hearing our school name is "How do you spell that?" and "Who was Aloeric?" Well, in history, the first Aloeric was a Norman Knight who was granted the villages of Melksham and Poulshot by William the Conqueror. Our school, when built in 1972, was named after him. Since then, the school has grown in popularity to become one of the largest in Wiltshire with over 400 children – this has led to the addition of two modern teaching blocks for our junior-aged pupils.
We have 14 classes and are a two from entry. The site is large, having been developed over forty years. We have a well used ICT suite, a large woodland area and huge playground, complete with fitness trails. Our greatest asset, however, is our children who come to our school ready to learn, make friends and try their very best.
