About Us


Sherborne Abbey VC Primary School occupies a site on the extreme western edge of the town at the end of Lenthay. The School was officially opened by the Earl and Countess of Wessex on Sunday, 9th July 2000. Formerly, the old school was on a site in  Horsecastles, more central within the town. The move from here was in response to a number of factors, chief of which were ever increasing pupil numbers, inadequate facilities of the old buildings and both child and traffic safety.

Planning permission for a new school was granted in 1997. This was to house 420 pupils in purpose built accommodation on a greenfield site to the West of the town at the end of Lenthay. The building work started in January 1999,when the first turf was cut by former headteacher, David Downton. Building was completed in January 2000 and the move made from the old school on 28th February during the half term holiday.

Mission Statement of the school


Our aim is to provide a happy, secure and stimulating environment where pupils can gain confidence and self esteem and secure the highest levels of academic achievement.


We will encourage pupils to work and to play amicably with one another and learn the value of co-operation, decent behaviour and respect for the environment.


All children are unique and will be given the support, opportunity and spiritual guidance fully to develop their individual talents.


We will seek to provide a broad and balanced curriculum tailored to individual needs and based on the firm and lasting foundations of Christianity.  This should enable pupils to grow into caring, tolerant and sensitive members of the community.


It is important that we work in harmony and co-operation with parents and governors to produce a school of the highest order with a mutually supportive and caring ethos.
