The school opened in September 1994 to provide additional accommodation for first school children in Dorchester. The school serves an area south of Queens Avenue and west of Weymouth Avenue as well as the new development of Poundbury, and hamlets to the south and west of the town. The school is designated a “Community” school and admits children from aged 4 to 9.

The purpose-built school has a particularly impressive design and is spacious and practical. It is set in its own extensive grounds which currently include play fields, playground, environmental studies area, orchard and outdoor teaching areas. There are hedgerows, imaginative play facilities and a reconstruction of an Iron Age settlement that is developed each year by the oldest children.

Inside, the school consists of a large hall with music area, cooking room, library, a reception base, two single bases, one large double teaching base and an additional classroom. At the moment the school can accommodate 180 children. As numbers grow the school will be expanded to cater for 300 pupils.


Our mission is to belong to a school that:

  • Is safe, caring and happy
  • Provides a vibrant, interesting and exciting curriculum for young children
  • Is based upon a strong partnership with parents
  • Welcomes all learners and seeks to ensure that all children achieve their potential
  • Provides all children with a positive attitude to learning and thus prepares them for the next stage in their education


The school aims for the development of the whole child. By this we mean the development of the child academically, socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and morally, to achieve the highest standards for each individual.

This will be attained by setting the highest expectations and by providing a broad and vibrant curriculum. The basics of literacy, speaking and listening, numeracy and computer skills are given a high priority. We also believe in the vital importance of a curriculum which is enjoyable, interesting, fun and genuinely engages the attention of young children.

We want all our children to develop positive attitudes to learning, as well as to improve their skills and increase their knowledge.

Since children learn in different ways the school will adopt a wide variety of teaching and learning styles and organisational strategies to suit the purpose of different activities.
