Welcome to our school
ST DUNSTAN’S IS A THRIVING, WELL ESTABLISHED SCHOOL THAT PROVIDES HIGH QUALITY EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL OUR STUDENTS IN A WELCOMING, SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT.
We have a reputation as a school that values each individual student. We have high expectations and are focused on getting the very best from every child in our care. We adhere to the traditional values of honesty, equality, kindness, respect, responsibility, restraint and good conduct in all aspects of school life. We are an innovative school responding to the changing needs and aspirations of our students as well as the demands of further education and employers. We support the development of our students academically and socially so they leave our school as confident, successful, responsible citizens.
St Dunstan's School opened as an Academy on 1 September 2011. This change recognised the progress the school is making and our capacity for further developments. We value our history and our place in the community so we continue to be known as St Dunstan's School.
As an Academy, St Dunstan's School is developing new curriculum initiatives and extra-curricular activities in order to extend the provision for all our students. This is enhanced by the increased opportunity for local decision-making and greater flexibility in targeting funding where we know it will make a significant difference to the achievements of our staff and students.
We are committed to working in partnership with our local schools. We share our specialist skills and resources with them. We want to make a real difference to the well-being and progress of all learners in the area.
Our wider links with the community are important to us. We work with others to provide a range of services and activities that support and engage our learners. It is vital that everyone in our local area responds to the economic challenges ahead and work together to raise the aspirations and attainment of all our young people so that they have the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to meet with continuing success in the future.
As part of the British Council Connecting Classrooms Project, we are developing some collaborative work with the students and staff at No 12 Middle School, Yueyang, Huan Province, China. Through this partnership we hope to ensure that our students are well placed to contribute positively to the communities in which they find themselves living and working whether it is locally, nationally or globally.
