It was lovely to see so many parents and pupils at our Cheese and Wine Evening. We hope you enjoyed looking back over the year and hearing about our vision for the future.  How nice it was, to celebrate the pupils’ achievements and recognise the hard work and support of our school community.

On Friday the whole school visited the Air Tattoo. It was a spectacular air-show and a day packed with fun and special opportunities to climb inside planes and meet pilots; thanks to all our parent helpers, in particular Mrs Bunny who made our VIP visits possible. To top off a wonderful day, Jasmine and Joseph came back from the STEM challenge victorious – Air Tattoo STEM challenge presentation winners 2017!

The National Trust

The school site is owned by the National Trust and rented to the school via the Local Authority. It forms part of Sherborne Estate which includes most of Sherborne Village, the rare 17th century grandstand at Lodge Park and the woodlands, parkland and water meadows surrounding the village, where our children go to study the wildlife with their teachers.

But the National Trust has been more than just our landlord. They donate our Christmas tree, help clear the snow from our playground in the winter and run a Guardianship project that gets our school children out into the countryside doing all sorts of things.

In the past we have buried a time capsule in a drystone wall, been pond dipping with the Head Warden and explored the woods on orienteering trips. The National Trust have very kindly agreed to set aside a part of the woodlands to be our forest school. We are very grateful to the Trust for the continued support and cooperation they give to the school.
