Schools in Devizes

Devizes, situated in southwest England's Wiltshire county, is a historic market town, brimming with heritage and architecture dating back to the 11th century. The town boasts 15,000 inhabitants in a beautiful agricultural and down-land environment ideal for living and exploring. Devizes developed around Devizes Castle, a 1080 construction by Bishop Osmund, which has undergone remnants of its rich history, from hosting prisoners like Robert Curthose, the youngest son of William the Conqueror, to its fortification in the Civil War. Devizes market square and "The Shambles" showcase thriving independent retailers, while the town still hosts regular markets and provides an annual stage for the Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Marathon. A gratifying aspect is Devizes' place as a center to explore neighboring villages, Salisbury Plain, the mesolithic, and neolithic sites near Stonehenge, and Avebury prehistoric monuments. With nearly 500 listed buildings, Devizes has a rich architectural history, including St. Mary's Congregational Church and the picturesque views of Roundway Down. It also hosts numerous events throughout the year, such as Wadworth Brewery tours, visiting the Caen Hill flight of locks on the Kennet and Avon canal, and the town's Art, International Street, and Food Festivals. Devizes is also easily accessible by road and nearby train stations, making it a great base for exploring the region.
