Chilthorne Domer Church School

We Stand Tall, Aim High and Love Learning

Admissions and new starters

September 2021 intake


Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you'll make in their early lives. We understand how important it is and in any normal year, visits are very welcome. However, due to the ongoing global pandemic, we are unable to welcome visitors or hold open days this autumn. 


In light of this, Willow Class (consisting of our oldest children) and Mr Stradling have been beavering away on a project that will give you a look in to our school and our daily lives - but virtually! Hopefully this will give you a taste of life at Chilthorne Domer Church School and will help you make the right decision for your child or children. 


Due to time constraints, the video focuses on the Early Years within our school - a longer term project is ongoing to create a whole school video but this won't be ready for some time. You can see some of what Ash Class get up to below!


Mrs Chesterton is usually available at the end of the phone and is happy to chat to any prospective parents - please just phone the school office to make an appointment. 


Please do also have a look at our latest Parent Survey results - you can find these using the link below:
