Welcome to our website


St Birinus Primary School
Dorchester St. Birinus Church of England School is a small village school where we seek to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment with opportunities for all children to develop their potential as joyful, confident, proud, healthy and independent individuals with key skills for life.

As you can appreciate, there is only so much information that can be gained from our website, however there is no substitute for visiting the school. If you would like to see St Birinus Primary School in action, I would be delighted to show you around. Please contact the school office on 01865 340081 to arrange a visit.

  • Young Voices 2019

    Yesterday Toby, Jacob, Charlie, Oakleigh, Joe, Ryan, Carys, Annabelle, Jessica, Sasha, Cecily, Phoebe, Megan, Diya, Reilly, Bella, Nola, Marcie and Angelina , Mrs Eade and I headed off to the Genting Arena in Birmingham for the eagerly anticipated Young Voices concert.  We had been busy learning the songs and all the dance moves to join the other 7000 children.  As always a highlight for me is to watch the Urban Strides group dance on stage – they are amazing and I certainly enjoy trying some of the actions with the songs as well as the electric atmosphere when the lights go out and the children let out a huge scream.

  • Christmas Lunch

    The whole school enjoyed a tasty Christmas lunch today.Thank you so much Gemma for all your hard work – lunch was amazing!

  • Remembrance

    On Thursday Revd. Sue led our special assembly in the Abbey to present our Poppy Banner.   It was a very moving time especially hearing the names of soldiers from the village who lost their lives during the wars.
