New Name - Silverwood School

Welcome to the new name !



24th November 2020Silverwood School FINAL 2


Dear Parents and Carers ,


Further to my recent letter, which included a voting link to choose a permanent name for North Wiltshire School, I am delighted that all votes are in. The Governing Body has ratified the most popular choice which was Silverwood School.

This will now be the permanent name of the school and we will now begin the process of designing a new logo that we can use for the website, letterhead, uniform, and signage etc.

I am confident that Silverwood School will embody the combined virtues of Larkrise, Rowdeford and St. Nicholas School. Governors have also decided that from now on we will refer to each of the schools by their campus location: Chippenham, Rowde and Trowbridge.

We had a fantastic response to the school name survey, and I would like to thank you all for your engagement in the process.

Should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I remain grateful for your continued support.


Yours sincerely,


Sean McKeown Aileen Bates
Interim Executive Headteacher Chair of Governors

Rowdeford Charity Trust raises money needed to fund projects to advance the education of children with special educational needs.

The Trust has helped to  fund innovative projects using resources within the SIlverwood School Rowde Campus that could not otherwise take place. Over the years there have been many successes but, of course, there is always the need for more. The Trust has been working with the school to build an Outdoor Learning Centre in the woodlands adjoining the school. A tremendous opportunity to use and share outdoor skills and learning to break down barriers between people with special needs, the wider community and workplaces. After the terrific fundraising it is now open !

Rowdeford Garden and Country Fair - will be back on 15th May 2022

It has been very disappointing to have had to cancel the 2020 and 2021 Garden fairs due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The committee have started to plan for a bumper event in 2022.  It will be the first Garden Fair at Silverwood School, Rowde Campus. campus at Rowde.

If you have any ideas for the event or if you want to be added to the mailing list for stall holders or advance ticket then get in touch throught one of the names below.

The 2019 Garden Fair raised some £10,500 for the Rowdeford Charity Trust, who do so much to support the Silverwood School at the Rowde Campus. This is an excellent location that deserves the full support of the community.  We look forward to 2022 and an excellent day out.
