Welcome! At Marshwood Primary Academy we are committed to helping our children be happy, successful and supportive of one another. We have a fantastic staff, small class sizes and have been described as 'one big happy family'.

Founded in 1842 Marshwood Primary is one of Dorset's longest established Primary schools. Around seventy children attend the school and there are three classes. The head of school, teachers and teaching assistants work together as a strong team to provide the children with an excellent education. Standards at the school are high and the latest Ofsted (May 2017) praised the Head of school and staff for 'working tirelessly to make sure pupils recieve a good education,' and 'ensuring that pupils experince a rich curriculum, both in school and out.'

Children at Marshwood love learning outside. Many of the lessons take place within our fabulous grounds, with the stunning backdrop of the Marshwood Vale. We can even see the sea from our playground and children enjoy weekly Forest School sessions in our woodland classroom!
