Admission Arrangements

Broadwindsor Church of England V.C. Primary School aims to offer the very best learning environment and to promote high levels of self-esteem and a lifelong love of learning.

Broadwindsor School was established in 1835 and moved from the original school building to the current site in 1968. It is a single storey building occupying a prominent place in the village of Broadwindsor, one of the most beautiful parts of Dorset.

The school has four classrooms, a school hall, library, kitchen facilities, music room and dedicated First Aid room.  It is resourced in all areas of the curriculum.

The school grounds enable all our children to play on grass or on a hard play area depending on the weather. There are two environmental areas including a natural stream and an outside seating area under the trees. All classes use the outside areas in different ways to support curriculum work.
