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.
