Stoborough is a Church of England Voluntary Aided First School, situated to the south of Wareham in the beautiful and historic Isle of Purbeck, in the heart of Dorset. As a church school we have strong links with the Diocese of Salisbury and the Parish of Wareham.

The original buildings are Victorian, a reception classroom was added in 1991 and a hall was constructed in 2003. We have a large playing field which includes outdoor play equipment, a pond and an environmental science area. We also have an outdoor swimming pool which is used by all the children, everyday during the second half of the summer term (weather permitting!!)

We cater for children in the 4 to 9 age range. After their time with us the majority of pupils move on to either Wareham or Sandford Middle Schools.There are currently 120 pupils on roll, divided in to 5 single age group classes. Stoborough is a popular school which draws extensively from outside its catchment area. The average class size is 25. Each class is supported by a team of excellent teaching assistants. We are almost unique as one of only two primary schools in the whole of Dorset to provide a hot lunch service. On average about half of the children have a hot meal each day; the rest bring a packed lunch.
