About The Purbeck School

The Purbeck School is a very successful school, currently celebrating a highly impressive Progress Eight score at GCSE for the third year running, with last year’s Year 13 students also attaining record-breaking results. Both sets of results place us as one of the leading schools in the County for both GCSE and A Level.

Once again, our students have gone on to study Medicine, Law, Physics and English Literature (to name but a few) at universities including Oxford and many other Russell Group establishments, whilst others have secured highly competitive places on Higher Level Apprenticeships with companies such as Wessex Water and Babcocks.

As a result, we have been oversubscribed for the past two years and are continuing to grow as a school. The school currently has around 850 lower school students and 150 in the sixth form, we are ambitious to grow these numbers over the coming years.
