Dormston's toponym has evolved from Deormodesealdtune in the 10th century via Dormestun in the 11th Century and Dormyston in the 15th century before reaching its present form. Dormston existed by the 10th century, when King Edgar confirmed a grant of property at Dromston to Pershore Abbey.
The Church of England parish church of Saint Nicholas has a 14th-century nave and chancel. Its timber-framed bell tower was added late in the 15th century, and the largest of its three bells is of the same period. The two other bells were cast in 1613 and 1640. The Gothic Revival architect C.C. Rolfe restored the church building in 1899.
