Merging with Sherborne Area School’s Trust

SAST is a strong and ambitious Trust of both primary and secondary schools with a national Teaching School, which seeks to ensure an excellent and sustainable 0-19 education for children within our community across West and North Dorset, as well as South Somerset.

SAST currently has 17 schools serving the West and North Dorset area as well as South Somerset. Currently the Trust has more than 5,000 students and we employ over 850 staff. There is real strength in coming together, with a collective responsibility for all of the children’s development and progress between 0-19 years. SAST believes in preserving and growing schools in their local community.
