Blagdon Primary School planted a cherry tree in the grounds to celebrate the day it joined the Lighthouse Schools Partnership.
The multi-academy trust was formed in September 2016 with 23 schools ranging from nurseries to sixth forms.
Headteacher Jenny Campbell said: "Blagdon Primary School has been working closely with Lighthouse Schools Partnership for a number of months and we are delighted to be joining them formally."
The trust's chief executive Gary Lewis is 'delighted' to welcome the school to the partnership.
He added: "We have been working very closely with leaders and governors in the school to secure funding and commission building improvements on the site.
"These are the first fruits of great things to come and the new head, Jenny Campbell, and I are completely committed to Blagdon Primary School's future, continuing to serve its community as an excellent school."
Gordano School and Backwell School are also part of the trust.
