The School Today

Beaminster School , situated in West Dorset, is a Voluntary Controlled 11-18 Co-Educational school, with Christian affiliations, accepting students of all faiths and religious inclinations.



The main school stands in beautiful open countryside on the edge of Beaminster and provides education for students drawn from a wide rural area. The town itself, with a population of about 3,000, lies just six miles from the south coast, and is renowned for its charm and historic interest.

The school has developed from the former Beaminster and Netherbury Grammar School, itself a 19th century amalgamation of two much earlier (16th and 17th century) foundations. It lies at the heart of the local community, in purpose-built accommodation on a pleasant 30-acre site, with ‘green and leafy hills all round’.  As a small voluntary-controlled school with a warm ‘family’ atmosphere and a strongly local identity, we are able to foster a climate in which every boy and girl can develop his or her talents to the fullest.  Behind everything that goes on is a real liking for and understanding of young people.  Our size ensures that all students are known and understood.  Because we are a Technology College, our students benefit from additional resources and opportunities.
