We are open:

–  NEW OPENING HOURS – The school office is manned Monday to Friday 10am – 3pm during term time. At other times please leave a telephone message or send us an email, we might be teaching when you call so always leave a message and we will respond quickly.

Lessons are by appointment 7 days a week during term time, daytime and evening.

Our teaching terms are broadly in line with those of the local state schools, tuition during the holiday is by prior arrangement.

We are easy to find…

Do call in to see us if you are in Blandford.  We are very near the centre of town, one minute away from the Post Office and the Library.

By car

Half way up Salisbury Street where the Sturminster road forks left, turn sharp right into The Plocks.

Continue until you pass the Post Office and the red brick Methodist Church on your left.

Opposite the far end of the Methodist Church you will see twin brick pillars on your right – this is the entrance to our drive.

We don’t have much parking space adjacent to the building, but there is plenty of parking available within easy walking distance.

On foot

From the Market Place turn up Sheep Market Hill at the east end of the parish church, and then at the top of the hill bear right. Look for our driveway flanked by two brick pillars on your right hand side.
