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.
When children are in an environment that celebrates the learning process, there are no bounds to their knowledge and development. ISI Inspectors recently concluded: “the quality of academic and other achievements is excellent”. I would be delighted to welcome you to our school, where you will see children who are confident and happy to be learning about the world around them.
Meanwhile, do please take a look through our website where I hope you gain a sense of our distinctive approach.
