To find William Barnes Primary School from the A357 (the Blandford Road), turn across the bridge at the traffic lights that crosses the River Stour. William Barnes is on the left hand side just after the first houses. It is easy to miss being set back from the road. If you reach the ‘Fish and Chip’ shop you have gone a little too far.
If you are coming from Bath Road and the market place continue past ‘Root and Vine’ on your left, past the ‘Fish and Chip’ shop and the driveway to William Barnes Primary School will be on your right hand side. If you come in sight of the bridge and the traffic lights you have gone a little too far.
