StowerProvost Community School is a small rural primary school where each child is treated as a special individual and encouraged to achieve their very best.
Our motto, “Together we grow,” underpins everything we aim to achieve.
At Stower Provost Primary School, we value the benefits of working together in a small, caring community where learning is at the heart of all we do. Everyone is challenged and encouraged to thrive and achieve as an individual, preparing each one to be a confident and active citizen in modern Britain.
Our vision is to create a school community where the uniqueness of every child is valued. We strive to instill in the children a lifelong love of learning and ambition for their future so they are proud of their achievements.

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, almost 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.
We feel we are an important part of our local community, joining in with local events and welcoming members of the community into school. We make sure our achievements are celebrated, too, through newsletters in local magazines and papers. Click here to read the latest bulletin
