About Dorchester Middle School

Dorchester Middle School converted to become a Single Academy school on 1 June 2012. There are currently 595 pupils, with a 5-form entry at Year 5.

On leaving Dorchester Middle School, pupils usually transfer to the neighbouring Thomas Hardye School (THS), which is part of the Wessex Multi Academy Trust.

Dorchester Middle School is part of a pyramid of local schools, receiving pupils from Damers First School and Prince of Wales First School in Dorchester as well as local village first schools.

There are strong links and good working relationships with all of the feeder First Schools and the Thomas Hardye School, which enables smooth transition between the various stages of our pupils’ education. The school is also part of the Dorchester Area Schools Partnership (DASP), designed to enhance and benefit learning within the pyramid.

Nearly all pupils are of White British heritage and the proportion of pupils with English as a second language is well below average.
