Buckland Newton CE Primary School

Buckland Newton CE Primary School covers Reception to Year 6 with an onsite pre-school. We are a very successful village school and are very much part of the local community. We have strong links with the church and wonderful support from our governing body, parents, a band of volunteers from the community and FBNS (Friends of Buckland Newton School). We are a multi-academy trust (Sherborne Area Schools' Trust - SAST). We have a very well-resourced and safe Foundation Area; this enhances our lovely school grounds and facilities, including our Spiritual Garden, wooden trail and tyre park.
