Welcome to Dunannie

Dunannie is a forward-thinking, happy school with an emphasis on hands-on learning

At Bedales, children are encouraged to ask questions, think creatively and learn independently. Dunannie is where these vital skills begin to take shape. Supported by inspirational and dedicated teachers, the children are encouraged to have the confidence to make their own decisions and to formulate their own ideas. 

Dunannie children are outdoors, come rain or shine. Alongside academic subjects, children have regular lessons in PE, swimming, ICT, outdoor work, music and art. In a normal week, children could be planting seeds in the vegetable garden or harvesting the produce. They might bake cakes to take on a picnic or press apples that they have picked from the orchard. They may be playing tennis or walking down to the farm to tend to the Bedales chickens, sheep and pigs.

At Dunannie, we help children to discover their talents, passions and identities. We want them to be comfortable in their own skins and to know their own minds. We encourage them to be kind, respectful, well-rounded individuals with a powerful sense of responsibility to others; and above all, we want them to be happy!
