Inspiring a Lifetime Love of Learning

Welcome


A very warm welcome to Cheselbourne Village School!

Cheselbourne Village School may be small in size, but it is big on what it offers the children who attend.  Our lovely, rural first school and pre-school supports around 50 children from the surrounding charming Dorset villages of Cheselbourne, Ansty, Melcombe Bingham and Hilton, it also offers places to children from further afield too.

At Cheselbourne we are Proud to be a Small School. We are excited about learning and pride ourselves on our extremely passionate staff, who take advantage of our smaller classes to provide creative, stimulating and exciting learning opportunities designed to support every child in achieving their full potential.  All of this is done in a nurturing, safe and fun environment, where strong friendships are forged and children gain a love of learning that will last them a lifetime. 

In 2017 OFSTED graded our school GOOD and our positive report states that:

Pupils are enthusiastic about learning. They welcome visitors warmly, are keen to share their work and speak confidently about their learning and what they need to do to improve further. They focus well in class and are respectful of others’ views and responses. Pupils enjoy school. One parent, typical of many, commented that her children ‘run into school in the morning’.  

I hope you enjoy finding out about our school and how we work together to ensure our pupils are happy, secure and successful. As well as visiting our website please come and meet us, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, phone or email! We look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,

Mary See
