Welcome to Dunannie

Dunannie is the starting point of the Bedales approach to education. 

Victoria Homewood
Head of Dunannie

Described as “an outpost of heaven down the road”, Dunannie inspires children by learning through doing in a community based on mutual respect. Children help to form the rules of caring behaviour towards one another and are on first name terms with teachers. Supported by inspirational and dedicated teachers, the children are encouraged to have confidence to make their own decisions and to formulate their own ideas in class. In taking ownership of their journey, children are more motivated, and this approach from the earliest of years supports one of our key aims: to develop inquisitive thinkers with a love of learning.
