Please bear with us during this process. Car park safety for the children is paramount.


On Thursday 3 September and Friday 4 September the drop-off window is 8.15 -9.00am.

Please arrive slightly later if you do not have older siblings to drop at Dunhurst.

From Monday 7 September, please arrive at school between 8.15 and 8.30am.


Pupils will be dropped off at the normal time from 8.15am at the bottom of the steps in the designated drop-off area. To ensure car park safety, please drive to a staff member who will indicate for your child to exit your vehicle. There will be staff on hand to ensure safe delivery of your children and we will endeavour to keep this as normal as possible. Pupils will then proceed into school via the shortest route to the external entrance closest to their tutor base.

If you have any relevant information which you feel would be helpful for your child’s tutor/teacher to be aware of, please email their class tutor/teacher in advance. The drop-off window will not be a place to pass this information on.

The lockdown experience has been different for us all. If you feel sharing your child’s experience with their tutor/teacher would assist us in supporting them in their pastoral care, please also get in touch with tutors/teachers via email.

Minibus service

The school minibus services will be running as per the school website:

It is important that any children using this service sanitise their hands prior to entering the minibus and after departing the vehicle. They will also have to wear a face mask throughout the journey to school.


Children should not use public transport to get to school. Private transport should be used instead.

When dropping boarders off on Wednesday 2 September at 6.00pm, current boarders should be dropped at the bottom of the steps, where a member of the team will meet them.

When boarders arrive, they will need to do the following:

  • Temperature check
  • Health Screen
  • Information about any prescribed medicines
