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.

A wonderful village school which makes the most of it's rural setting. Strong links with the local community, church, farm and village. It's own Forest School woodland an easy walk from the school. Dedicated staff, polite, well-behaved, enthusiastic children and a supportive and active governing body.

Really well behaved children at this school

Bryanston School

Blandford Forum DT11 0PX, UK – 01258 452411

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.

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.
