Jane Grubb
Head of Dunhurst

It is apparent from the moment you enter Dunhurst that it is a unique school:

A warm inclusive atmosphere in which relationships are built on trust, tolerance, respect, support and care; a stimulating curriculum that has breadth and depth; a school where children experience the joy of discovery and learning and a wealth of opportunity.

The academic curriculum offers challenge through innovative teaching that inspires the pupil and focuses on the individual. Confidence grows as the children grow, and with it their desire to question and discuss. Our distinctive approach to learning helps children excel academically. Learning through doing lies at the heart of our educational ethos. The vast majority of pupils at Dunhurst will go on to Bedales.
