The Hans Price Academy, formerly known as Wyvern Community School, is a secondary school with academy status in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, England. The school, which has specialist Sports College status, has 725 students between the ages of 11 and 16 years as of January 2012.

In 2009, 31% of the pupils at the school achieved 5 or more GCSE passes at grade C or above including mathematics and English, and a contextual value added (CVA) figure of 1002.1.[2] In 2010, the GCSE score improved to 35%, but was still the lowest in North Somerset,[3] and was below the local authority average of 56.1% and national average of 53.4%.

In 2009, plans to turn the school into an academy were revealed.[4] On 1 May 2011, Wyvern School became the Hans Price Academy,[5] named after local Victorian architect Hans Price. The academy is now run by educational charity Cabot Learning Foundation, which plans to spend £14 million transforming the site.
