Welcome to Milton-on-Stour Primary School


Welcome from the Headteacher  

Welcome to our website.  We hope you find it informative, and that it helps give you a flavour of some of the exciting opportunities our school has to offer.


Milton-on-Stour Church of England Primary School is situated in a beautiful village just outside the town of Gillingham in North Dorset. Our school is made up of 5 classes, with an admission number of 20 each year. We are located next to the Church of St Simon and St Jude and we have strong links with our church and community.

Our school curriculum is based on the core values of Love, Hope and Joy and has been written to promote ambitious reading and oracy, to develop character skills and to embrace diversity. We use key texts as the drivers for our curriculum and create many opportunities for experiential learning and project outcomes.

We have the most beautiful grounds where children get the opportunity to learn how things grow, to appreciate the world around us and to explore and flourish in the outdoors. Our grounds include adventurous play equipment, a forest area, a firepit and outdoor pizza oven, a woodland area, ponds and an outdoor amphitheatre.

Many of our children get to cycle to school along the cycle path that runs from Gillingham to Milton-on Stour, which not only helps to promote daily exercise but also promote independence as pupils reach upper key stage two.

We offer a range of extra-curricular activities after school including sports clubs, art, science, choir and dance. We also offer a early morning club for pupils whose parents need to get to work early.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our school with you.
