Visiting the College

We encourage all prospective families to visit St Dunstan’s College on one of our open events before applying, or to attend one of our engaging virtual events, hosted by various members of the leadership teams at the College. These events are an excellent opportunity to find out more about life at the St Dunstan’s, the application process, and to meet current staff and pupils.

At open events, families will be welcomed by senior members of staff, with talks given by them and by senior pupils. Following the welcome, prospective families are then given a tour of our site, including our significant new buildings and current developments.

The Whole College Open Day was a great way to learn more about St Dunstan's. The Head's talk was informative and interesting, and it was brilliant to meet staff and students as we toured the school grounds. We stayed for around two hours and left knowing we would be registering for a place for our daughter.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to St Dunstan's College. Staff and students were lovely, and it was clear to see how important the College values of community and compassion truly are to everyone.
