PreSchools and Playgroups for Blandford Camp

Handy Paws Pre-School

Church Road, Durweston, Blandford Forum DT11 0QA, UK – 01258 452277

Excellent pre-school, a really homely feel, my three daughters have all been to Handy Paws, and all have really enjoyed being there. The team provide excellent care and feedback to parents, but most of all provide an excellent start to a child's education - through play and activities.

Handy Paws has been graded Outstanding in every OFSTED inspection we’ve ever had. Last time they visited, in September 2016, OFSTED said: Children in the pre-school make outstanding progress. Their skills, levels of knowledge and personal development are well above what is typical for their age.

Knighton House School and The Orchard Pre-prep

Durweston, Blandford Forum DT11 0PY, UK – 01258 452065

Knighton House is a every parents idea of the perfect country girls prep school (ages 7 to 13, plus nursery from 3 to 7). Excellent academic results achieved in a nurturing environment. Plenty to occupy day, flexi and boarders alike. A focus on the child with small class sizes (average 8 to 10); wonderful comfy dorms, ponies, rabbits, pigmy goats all in 30 acres of beautiful Dorset countryside. I speak from experience as I have 3 children at the school, who moved from a London day-school environment and have flourished at Knighton.

Lovely grounds and an interesting school. Seek out the old school photos in the corridors. They don't wear school uniforms so the fashion and haircuts are a wonderful historic document (and hilarious).

It is a great sports camp.

Independent Driving

11 Albert St, Blandford Forum DT11 7HY, UK – 01258 452419

I choose Bournemouth independent driving because I had researched and seen all the good reviews. I was very lucky to get Martin as a driving instructor. He built my driving confidence which aloud me to pass my test first time. Thankyou Martin and Bournemouth independent driving school. I highly recommend! 🙂

I have never really been confident in my driving, but having Chrissy as an instructor was really helpful in improving my confidence. Chrissy paced the lessons based on what I wanted to do, so gave me the freedom to develop at my own pace. Before my test I was made fully aware of all the potential safety questions and how to answer them fully, preparing me for driving beyond passing the test. I have recommended Chrissy to my friends prior to my test and I'd do the same after.
