Every Child Matters

Gryphon School: Sherborne

Safe

As a school we ensure that every child feels safe whilst they are with us. We also endeavour to provide information about safety, which will support our students in their every day life. The school council runs an ‘I Am Me’ campaign to help promote a safe school environment.

Economic Wellbeing

As a specialist Business and Enterprise school economic wellbeing is at the heart of our curriculum. All students take part in enterprise activities through the year and the opportunity to enter competitions and take part in clubs are numerous.

Positive Contribution

Students support many of the activities that run in the town including Rotary Club debates, Douzelage exchanges, musical performances to name but a few.  All students at The Gryphon volunteer within the town during their time at the school, this could be helping to  prepare gardens for Sherborne in Bloom, helping at the local nature reserve, paining fences at the nursery, installing computers at a local residential home., the list is endless. This is an opportunity which students really enjoy and helps them to give something back to the town that the school is based in.
