Children and staff chose our school core values, which were:
The Dunham Trust
Our school is part of The Dunham Trust.
The Trust has a highly experienced and supportive Board of Directors who have a wealth of expertise in industry and education. Their role is to ensure that The Dunham Trust will be the best it can be, for the schools and young people within its care.
The Trust are committed to:
– High quality school improvement activity
– Cross-trust networking opportunities
– Research and development
The promotion of sport, outdoor education and the creative arts is a significant feature of the schools within The Dunham Trust. The Trust recognises the importance of the development of pupil self-esteem and offering a broad range of out-of-classroom experiences.
“They come this way only once so we should litter their pathways with quality experiences”
Individual schools in The Trust have regular opportunities to participate in joint creative projects, led by a wide range of creative specialists. These inclusive opportunities also provide a successful platform for both staff networking and staff professional development.
