Welcome to St. Mary’s CE VC Primary School

St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School with its Little Pips Pre School and Early Years Foundation Stage Unit is a popular small village school in Thorncombe, just five miles from the town of Chard. Our school is situated in beautiful West Dorset where the borders of Somerset and Devon also meet. We are fortunate to have extensive outdoor grounds and use this space and the local areas surrounding the school to enhance learning opportunities and deliver a broad and balanced curriculum.

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