Announcing the winner, David Moncrieff, from Independent School Parent Magazine, explained: 'St Dunstan's College for their renaissance education, their pupil voice and their championing of the individual.'

Good Schools Guide

We are delighted to share with you all our latest review by The Good Schools Guide, following a visit in June 2021.

'Diverse in every way – academically, socially, and intellectually. The St Dunstan’s ethos could come across as a bit ‘woke’ on paper, but in real life we found the school to be inspiring, both liberating and liberal thanks to interesting leadership, committed teaching and a very engaged student body. A great school for unstuffy polymaths.'

Inspection Reports

Our most recent inspection from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) found the school to be ‘excellent’ in every category. 

The findings from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) Focused Compliance and Education Quality Inspection report found that ‘the quality of the pupils’ academic achievement and other achievements is excellent,’ and that ‘pupils of all ages display excellent knowledge, skills and understanding and become resilient in their learning as they move through the school’. The report’s key findings also found that St Dunstan’s pupils of all ages ‘have outstanding attitudes to learning and are effective independent learners and thinkers’ and that they ‘learn effectively by collaborating with their peers’.

During their visit, inspectors spent time in an upwards of 90 lessons, seeing nearly every teacher at St Dunstan’s. They met with teaching and non-teaching staff, and spent time with more than 100 pupils from the Nursery to the Sixth Form. The leadership team, led by Headmaster Mr Nicholas Hewlett, were found to ‘give every individual a chance to work out the person they want to be.’
