Welcome to Dorridge Primary School

"Together we play, learn and succeed."

Dorridge is a large, three-form entry, community Primary School, set in large, attractive grounds. In addition, we have a 40 place Nursery offering both morning and afternoon sessions.

We can also offer full wraparound care at Darby's, our brand new, purpose built facility.

We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing environment, where children can develop into confident young people with a real thirst for learning. We strive to give them the necessary building blocks on which to progress in their future learning. This is accomplished by creating a wealth of exciting experiences to help children achieve academically and personally.

This is a happy school. Visitors often remark on the positive atmosphere, the caring attitudes and excellent manners of the children.

An important factor in our success is a close partnership between home and school. Parents are involved in the life of the school in many ways, such as termly meetings, helping in class, PTA and Parent Council. We are grateful to parents for their active support and encourage you to become as involved as you can.

All staff and Governors at DPS are highly committed to provide the very best education for all children.
