The school is situated in an idyllic rural location near the center of Cranborne Chase in Dorset, and offers many facilities and technological capabilities that enable us to provide an outstanding level of education. Our pupils generally come from surrounding villages such as Sixpenny Handley, Wimborne St. Giles, The Gussages, Alderholt, Woodlands, and Cranborne itself. Additionally, we are a popular alternative for pupils from Verwood and other outlying areas.
