Cheselbourne Village School

Cheselbourne Village School is a Dorset Local Authority first school. We provide exceptional education for children from 4 to 9 years old. Class sizes are small and organised into mixed-age class groups that vary throughout the day. Our motto is 'Inspiring a Lifetime Love of Learning' and our ethos is to enthuse children about learning in a calm, nurturing and proactive environment. Attainment is high and our delightful children say they love coming to school! We also have an onsite Pre-School, Caterpillars, that runs Monday to Friday, 9am-3pm in term time. Children can attend pre-school from 2 years and 9 months.
