Our Wessex family of schools

Headteacher's Welcome

The Purbeck School is a vibrant and exciting school community where everyone matters. Our approach to learning promotes and embeds our core values of kindness, aspiration and perseverance in order to develop happy, fulfilled pupils who will contribute positively to our own community and beyond.

The school is an 11-18 provider offering an all through educational service, we are deeply committed to ensuring that all our students succeed and that they are fully prepared for the challenges that the 21st century holds for them, whether that be in further/higher education, or in the world of work and apprenticeships.

We provide a dynamic learning environment that has at its core a culture of high expectations for all students based around the school principles of ‘Kindess, Aspiration, Perseverance’. These high expectations have enabled the school to academically thrive and we are very proud to have a track record of exceptional A level and GCSE results which place the school firmly within the top 20% of schools nationally.

The school provides a wealth of opportunities for students. Whether it be joining one of the many sports teams, singing in the choir, taking a part in the musical, joining the STEM club, taking part in some of the many trips such as the Battlefields Tour to Belgium, the Arts trip to New York, or the Sports Tour to Greece, there really is something for everybody.
