The Gryphon School is fortunate to have outstanding 21st century facilities in a modern, purpose-built school campus set amongst beautiful rural surroundings. We are proud to be Dorset’s first Business and Enterprise Specialist School, with a new community Conference Centre opened by HRH The Earl of Wessex in 2006.

Education is most fulfilling when there is a sense of enjoyment alongside the commitment required for success. The range of visits, activities and other opportunities provided by the staff through the year are extensive. As a part of The Gryphon School you will appreciate the atmosphere and positive relationships between students, parents, staff and the community. We have high expectations of behaviour, consideration of others and good manners. The quality of teaching aims to enable every child to succeed and is accompanied by the standard of support and care expected of a high-performing school.


Our curriculum challenges each student, whilst remaining sensitive to the needs of individuals.

We identify:

  • Those who are the most able
  • Those with learning difficulties
We encourage:
  • Achievement to be celebrated
  • Self-esteem to be built
We teach:
  • According to the National Curriculum
  • Using specialist staff teams
  • With clear targets
We reward:
  • Through active praise
  • With stickers, commendations, good news postcards and letters home
  • In one-to-one celebration of success meetings with the Headteacher


One of the best teams in the County, The Gryphon School Learning Support department works across the curriculum supporting students in the classroom as well as in the Learning Support Centre. The Gryphon School Special Educational Needs (SEN) policy states that all students are entitled to a broad, balanced, relevant and differentiated education. Structures and systems are in place to ensure equality of opportunity for all. Identification, assessment and provision arrangements for students who require additional provision, whether statemented or not and including those who attend the dyslexia base, are central to the policy.

The Dyslexia Centre

Specialised support for severely dyslexic pupils who, with help, can cope within a normal school environment.
