Our Children

The children at Powerstock School come from both rural and urban communities. Some children are from families who have had an association with the school for many generations, others are new to both the school and the locality. The school seeks to encourage a strong community spirit. Within our school, pupils are able to develop an awareness of good citizenship based on trust, respect and kindness.

At Powerstock we are proud of these relationships and of the high standards of behaviour and courtesy shown by our pupils.

Our Church

Powerstock School maintains a strong link with Powerstock Church, St. Mary the Virgin. We celebrate the Christian year with celebrations and services in and outside of the Church. From Harvest service in the Autumn, to our Nativity at Christmas, Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent, the Easter service, to Ascension Day and our Leaver’s service at the end of the Summer term.

Collective worship is held every day. The whole school attends a church assembly led by Rev. Chris Grasske most Wednesdays in Powerstock church.  Pupils are encouraged to reflect and experience moments of awe and wonder.  The main religions of the world are referred to and explored, but the main focus is Christianity following our ethos as a Church of England school.

Our Governors

As a voluntary aided school the majority of our governors are ‘Foundation’ (Church) governors. Please click here to learn more about our School Governors.

The Powerstock School Association (PSA)

The Powerstock School Association is made up of parents, teachers and friends of the school. This active association raises extra funds to be used on behalf of the children of the school. Every parent is invited to participate and automatically a member.

The PSA run a number of fund raising and social events through the year including: quiz nights, cake stalls in Bridport, Christmas cards & gifts and produce & craft stalls at local events.

The village of Powerstock

We have a strong connection with our village and join in with community events whenever possible. These events include church festivals, fetes, sports and musical events and the kite festival. We also use the village hall (known as the Hut) for sports, social events, assemblies and as a dining area at lunchtime.
