Sturminster Newton High School

Local Authority School. At Sturminster Newton High School we set high standards for academic and personal achievement. Young people leaving this school will be confident individuals with the necessary ‘life’ skills for further success at university, college or in employment. We emphasise the development of good organisational, communication, ICT and problem-solving skills, thus developing young people who can use their initiative and relate well to others. In return, we expect good manners, respect for the school and a positive attitude towards learning.
