Our School History
Stoborough CE VA Primary School is situated on the edge of Wareham in the picturesque village of Stoborough.
We are part of the Purbeck cluster and benefit from the natural beauty of the surrounding areas.
Stoborough School was founded in 1872 and was later granted Controlled status under the 1944 Education Act. This meant that it remained a Church of England foundation.
During the academic year 2001-2002 the governors successfully applied to change to Voluntary Aided status in an attempt to further strengthen links with the local church and the Diocese of Salisbury.
Both these bodies have a strong interest in the school, demonstrating a continuing educational and pastoral concern.
Stoborough School is relatively small which we regard as an advantage. The children are quickly known individually by all members of staff and an atmosphere where all are respected and cared for as individuals prevails. Each and every one of our children is special to us.
The grounds of the school are used as a much valued resource and help the children to develop a greater awareness and appreciation of the environment. The school is situated in extensive grounds with hard and grassed areas, having excellent provision for outdoor sports. The school has its own woodland and wildlife areas as well as a raised garden and pond. We use the outdoor environment to help us deliver the curriculum as and when this is appropriate to do so.
