The Aims of our school are to:-

provide within a stimulating environment a broad and balanced

curriculum which will develop to the fullest the potential of every student.

ensure that students should take increasing responsibility for their own


expect that students should be tolerant and understanding of those around

them in their local and greater environments and prepare them for

responsible citizenship.

ensure that students should have equality of opportunity.


In order to support the Aims of Sturminster Newton High School we have a Code of Conduct. The one guiding principle in school is:-

This means:-

Showing respect for everyone at all times.

Always trying to understand other people's points of view.

In class, making it as easy as possible for everyone to learn and for the teacher to teach. This means arriving on time with everything needed for that lesson, beginning and ending the lesson in a courteous way, listening carefully, following instructions, helping each other where appropriate and being quiet and sensible at all times.

Being silent whenever required to do so.

Keeping the school clean and tidy and respecting other people's property and work. This means all litter must be put in bins, and all the school equipment, furniture and displays must be treated with care.

In or out of school, wearing school uniform with pride and remembering

that the school's reputation depends upon the way everyone looks and


School Uniform

At Sturminster students in Years 7 to 11 are requested to wear the school uniform which is distinctive and which we believe helps students settle quickly into their new school and feel that they belong. It also helps towards self-discipline and positive learning attitudes. Parents and the local community support our smart and sensible dress code.

School Transport

Dorset County Council provides free transport for all our students who live three miles or more from the school, the distance measured from door to door by the shortest suitable route. On some bus routes where there is space on a bus, they also offer concessionary seats to students who live within three miles or outside the catchment area. The present charge is Ł120 for the year and Ł194 per year for 16+ students. Parents should contact the Education Transport Section at County Hall, Dorchester for further details.

Clubs and Societies

Such activities are extremely valuable for the general growth and development of students and help widen their experience.

The school encourages all students to take part in at least one extra-curricular activity each term.

All should be prepared for work and be courteous.

All have the right to work without being disrupted by others.

3. All have the right to live in peace and safety, free from bullying or harassment of any kind. Tell staff if someone or something is making you unhappy. Say 'NO' firmly to anything you think is wrong.

4. We should all respect the name, property and environment of each other and the school.

Move quietly and sensibly around the school. This means never
