New School Year!

The Summer holiday is a blur, and we've now returned to school, welcoming new pupils and staff. We're joined by Miss Bush teaching Class 1, Mr West in Class 2 and Mr Turner as our Head of KS3.

There will be lots going on this term as always, so keep checking back for the latest news. You can also look us up on Facebook and Twitter.


Yewstock's Got Talent

Our talent show is always the highlight of the year, and this year was the BEST EVER! It took place on the afternoon of Friday 14th July, another scorcher of a day. We had some amazing entries from our pupils, including singers, dancers and musicians. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, and the winner will perform in our end-of-year assembly.

Well done to all involved - you really entertained us and we were very proud of you!

Summer Fete July 2017

We held our Summer Fete on Friday 7th July, and it was a glorious day. We had lots of visitor, and some lovely items, made and produced by pupils, on sale. Thank you to everyone who came along an supported us. We raised £700 for the Friends of Yewstock, which will go towards resources for pupils.





The Time Travellers

On Friday 14th July, Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils put on a wonderful performance of 'The Time Travellers', a whirl through history with song and dance! It was a great show, and very well received by the audience. Complete with professional lighting, scenery, costumes, and even a smoke machine, the pupils did us proud, and really enjoyed being on the stage. Thank you to Mrs Blitz for directing and producing, and everyone else who helped.



Tim Vine - a wonderful evening of comedy

We were truly honoured that comedy legend Tim Vine performed a fundraising gig for us, in preparation for his Edinburgh festival appearances.

The show took place at The Exchange in Sturminster Newton on Thursday 6th July. It was sold out, and Tim performed visual gags and rapid one-liners that he is known for. He received a very warm welcome from the crowd, and we would like to thank everyone who supported the school and had a very enjoyable evening. The event has raised £4604 for us - a phenomenal amount. A massive thank you to Tim Vine for his support, and good luck with the rest of his tour.

Here he is with Mr Kretz, Ms Howard and Mrs Holloway enjoying a post-show drink!

Sports Day 2017

The sun truly shone on our previously postponed Sports Day - what a difference a week can make!

Pupils took part in 10 activity stations in our non-competitive event. Lots of parents and carers came to lend their support, and it was a really great morning, calm, relaxed and enjoyable.
