Damers School

Schools and Education: Damers School


Damers First School relocated to Poundbury during 2017 to a new building on Liscombe Street, just off Peverell Avenue East. It is the first and only school in Poundbury.

The purpose-built school will update the facilities for Damers First School and it will also accommodate the growing population driven by the Poundbury development.

The extra space expanded Damers First School from a three-form entry school to four classes per year group and increase the school’s capacity to 600 pupils over five years. The school also houses a specialist speech and language unit.

Rated “Outstanding” in 2009, Ofsted said “pupils and staff are happy, confident and enthusiastic…there is an almost tangible buzz of anticipation at the start of the day throughout the school”. It added that “pupils’ personal development is outstanding because staff know pupils well and relationships are excellent”.
