A Welcome from the Head…

Welcome to The Blandford School, an 11-18 secondary set in a beautiful 18 acre campus in the heart of rural Dorset. As Headteacher, I speak for our Governing Board and staff team to say how proud we are of our students and how much we enjoy working with them.

The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum which is proven to meet the varied needs of our students and ensure they leave us able to lead happy, fulfilling lives and contribute positively to society. In 2018 our GCSE results were excellent and placed us in the top 27% of schools in the country, including selective schools; in the same year, our sixth form was placed fourth amongst Dorset sixth forms, including the independent sector.

Respect, positive attitudes to learning, effort and perseverance are central to our ethos; we do have high expectations in terms of attendance, punctuality and standards of uniform – we are ultimately preparing young people for the world of work and we take our role seriously in this.

I hope you enjoy the changes we have made to our website, changes which have been agreed with input from students, staff and parents. To ensure we are able to receive regular feedback from the community, we have added a Feedback Form to the site; please let us know your views, including if the information we are presenting meets your needs.

If you wish to visit the school at any time of the day, please make contact. We will look forward to showing you round.

Mrs Sally Wilson
