Welcome to St Mary’s CE VC Primary School

 

St Mary’s Church of England Primary School is a happy, small village school in Thorncombe, just a few miles from the towns of Chard, Axminster and Crewkerne. Situated in beautiful West Dorset where the borders of Somerset and Devon also meet, we make good use of our extensive outdoor grounds and access to local countryside to enhance delivery of our broad and balanced curriculum.

Founded in 1876, St Mary’s CE VC Primary Thorncombe is one of Dorset’s longest established primary schools and is at the heart of the local community it serves. Since September 2018, the school has been working in a management partnership with the Acorn Multi Academy Trust. St Mary’s works closely with Marshwood Primary Academy and other local schools to ensure the best learning opportunities for all children.

We have enthusiastic, dedicated staff who are supported by a very positive community who value their village school.

We warmly welcome visits to the school and would be proud to show you what we have to offer. If you would like to visit us at St Mary’s please give us a ring on 01460     30 535 or email the school at office@stmarysthorncombe.co.uk.
