Welcome to our website
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.
