Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to Gillingham School in North Dorset, set in the heart of the beautiful Blackmore Vale. Founded by benefactors in 1516, Gillingham School is proud and privileged to offer a quality and enjoyable educational experience that is open to all young people from the town of Gillingham, its surrounding villages and indeed, to young people further afield in Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset.


Welcome from the Head Boy & Head Girl

What a strange year it has been! I think Katie and I can speak for the whole school in saying we never envisaged a scenario where we would be learning from home for six months! We are so grateful to be back in the school environment with our friends and the excellent staff members who successfully maintained their support during these unprecedented times.
