The school was established in 1912 in buildings facing Simons Road to accommodate the northward expansion of the town.It was subsequently enlarged during the Second World War when the infant school in Tinneys Lane was bombed. The school lost its senior children in the late 1950's when secondary education was reorganised. The current purpose built accommodation was completed in July 1998 and was officially opened by HRH the Prince of Wales in April 1999. It comprises eleven classrooms with a nominal capacity of 330 pupils and provides additional space for a hall, music room, newly enlarged special needs department and a library/computer room.

The outdoor space is well utilised with room for a soccer pitch, training areas, netball courts and space for sports. The school uses local facilities for swimming and other sports as required.


  • To take account of the aspirations of Governors, staff, parents and children to produce a school of the highest order in serving its local community.
  • To be welcoming and accountable.
  • To provide a positive atmosphere encouraging self confidence and self esteem.
  • To develop a curriculum which encourages lively, enquiring minds so that pupils acquire knowledge, skills and practical abilities, the will to use them and the ability to communicate clearly and confidently.
  • To give children knowledge of their heritage and of their place in the community in order to provide an understanding of and respect for the backgrounds and beliefs of others.


Sherborne Primary School currently has 330 children on roll and is organised into 11 classes. The classes are organised by age, though to keep classes to a reasonable size some contain more than one age group. The Governors have a policy of keeping KS1 classes below 30 children, particularly during the reception year.
