Welcome

At St Mary’s CE VC Primary School we believe in ‘Growing together!‘ Our fantastic staff are committed to helping our children be happy, successful and supportive of one another. Our children benefit from small class sizes and our extensive outdoor space.

St Mary’s Primary School is located in the picturesque village of Thorncombe on the Dorset, Devon and Somerset border. We are at the heart of the local community, close to the busy town of Chard. Currently around sixty children attend the school, with a small pre-school attached. The head of school, teachers and teaching assistants work together as a strong team to provide the children with an excellent education. Our Management Partnership with nearby Marshwood CE Primary Academy has seen the school undergo rapid change.

Children at Thorncombe love learning outside, with many of our  lessons and weekly Forest School sessions taking place within our fabulous grounds.
