Schools in Weymouth

Weymouth, located in Dorset, England, is a seaside town known for its scenic bay at the mouth of the River Wey, nestled along the English Channel. With a population of 53,427 in 2021, Weymouth is the third-largest settlement in Dorset and features a rich history dating back to the Bronze Age. Weymouth's reputation as a resort began during the Georgian era, when King George III frequented the town for his health, and it later blossomed into an esteemed watering spot, attracting royalty and renowned medical practitioners. The town's growth continued through the Victorian era with increased sea-borne trade and the arrival of the railway. Weymouth's role in World War II saw it serve as a key embarkation point for American troops on their way to the Normandy Landings. Although the town's popularity as a seaside resort declined with the rise of cheap foreign holidays, Weymouth retains its significance as a gateway to the Shakespearean Isle of Portland and a location for the 2012 London Olympic sailing events. The evolving attractions of Weymouth include the 17th-century notices of Bronze Age weapons and the 19th-century Isle of Portland's Bill of Portland, the region encompassed in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as the area's rich history, culture, and natural beauty.
