Picture of school

We warmly welcome you and thank you for your interest in Archbishop Wake Church of England VA School. We are proud to be an outstanding school. Here every child is an individual and everyone is special. This is a caring learning environment where all our children are encouraged to achieve in a variety of ways and fulfil their own potential.

Successes are celebrated and each child's contribution is valued. We aim to provide a wide and balanced range of educational opportunities within a stimulating and purposeful learning environment.

We pride ourselves on the happy, caring and positive atmosphere that exists within the school which enables children to grow in self-confidence and develop a respect for the people and environment around them.

The school enjoys a strong active partnership with Blandford Parish Church and we see this as an important part of our identity.

At Archbishop Wake School we are committed to a full partnership between each governor, member of staff, parent and child, to ensure that your child's individual needs are met appropriately.

Mission Statement

We aim to provide a happy, caring and challenging learning environment where we do the best we can, whenever we can, in all the ways we can.


The aims of Archbishop Wake CE VA School derive naturally from the Christian faith, which is at the heart of all we do as a school:

  • To create a safe, stimulating and purposeful environment.
  • To care actively for each other and treat everyone with respect and tolerance.
  • To enhance and fulfil every child's potential.
  • To create a sense of the school as an extended family unit, developing positive links with the home, community and other schools.
  • To foster in our children a love of learning.
  • To develop a communal sense of pride in our school and in all our endeavours.


Governors are a bit like a board of directors. They make decisions about the school and what it offers to your children. The Governors of Archbishop Wake meet twice a term as a whole group. They also have committees that meet regularly to discuss and make decisions about specific topics, such as finance, environment, staffing and curriculum.

All the governors are dedicated unpaid volunteers who are keen to be approachable and to be involved, as far as their commitments allow, in the life of the school.

As in any school the governors of Archbishop Wake have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They act together for the benefit of the school, monitoring the school?s provision, selecting staff, administering finances, writing and finalising policies. Minutes of all meetings of the governing body are posted up for all to see on the parent?s noticeboard situated in the foyer.
