Welcome to St. Mary’s CE Primary School

St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School & EYFSU is a popular small village school in Thorncombe. Our school is situated in beautiful West Dorset where the borders of Somerset and Devon also meet. We are fortunate to have large grounds and use this space & the local areas surrounding the school to enhance learning opportunities.

Whether you are a parent or carer of a child who already attends our school or you are considering our school for your child in the future, we hope that you will find all the information that you need on our website. We warmly welcome visits to the school by appointment through the school office.
