‘Be your best – together we grow’
Stower Provost Community School is a small rural primary school where each child is treated as a special individual and encouraged to be the very best that they can be.
Our motto, “Be your best – together we grow,” underpins everything we aim to achieve and our mission statement is:
”For Stower Provost to be an outstanding school where high expectations, best practice and a stimulating learning environment enables our children to grow into confident enthusiastic life-long learners who achieve their very best.”
Our school dates from 1850, is situated in North Dorset between the towns and villages of Gillingham, Shaftesbury, Sturminster Newton and Marnhull and is located in a unique and beautiful rural setting with views of the Blackmore Vale and the Dorset Downs. Our catchment area covers a number of villages – Fifehead Magdalen, Kington Magna, Stour Provost, East and West Stour, Stour Row and Todber. However, half of our children come from outside the catchment, a measure, we hope, of our reputation for helping all our children develop to the best of their potential, not just academically but as well rounded members of our community.
