The Sherborne Area Schools’ Trust (SAST) was formally established with the Department for Education on 1 June 2017. This local primary/secondary multi-academy trust includes nine schools serving our local community: Buckland Newton CE Primary, Charlton Horethorne Primary, St Andrews CE Primary (Yetminster), Sherborne Primary, Sherborne Abbey CE Primary, St Mary’s CE Primary (Bradford Abbas), The Gryphon School, King Arthur’s School and Thornford CE Primary.
SAST believes there is real strength in coming together with a collective responsibility for all of the children’s development and progress between 0-19 years. The Trust believes in preserving schools in their local community and providing considerable local expertise to support Thornford Primary School.
