Welcome to St Dunstan's College Junior School, where pupils make their first marks on the blank canvas of their St Dunstan's shield as they begin their College adventure, learning who they are and discovering a true love of learning from the earliest stages.
“Our highly skilled and dedicated Junior School team strikes the perfect balance between academic rigour, exploratory play and a personalised approach to learning."
Miss Laura Whitwood, HEAD OF JUNIOR SCHOOL
We are a coeducational Junior School integrated within a wider College community. Pupils in the Junior School benefit from both having a form teacher who will deliver the majority of the curriculum to them, as well as the expertise of specialist teachers in a range of subjects outside of our core curriculum.
Enrichment opportunities, a small-class setting and the first-class facilities we have access to with the move to our new building in April 2021, means that all pupils are supported to be appropriately challenged, inspired and encouraged to achieve their potential and reach their goals.
St Dunstan’s College Junior School aims to inspire a true love of lifelong learning from the very earliest stages. Our academic ambition is cultivated by a balance of challenge, rigour, immersive learning experiences and independent exploration. Our engaging, broad and balanced Junior School Hecker curriculum is unashamedly aspirational for each and every pupil, regardless of their starting point, and equips them with the necessary skills they will need to thrive as proactive global citizens within a rapidly changing world.
Children are constantly challenged and encouraged to take ownership of their learning by challenging themselves, helping to make learning fulfilling and stimulating. Specialist teaching in art, languages, drama, music, swimming, ICT, sport and PE ensures that children receive the high standard of education across all areas of the curriculum and that excellent progress is made in every subject.
