What the school says...
At Dunraven we pride ourself on the high quality of our expectations for all young people encapsulated in our mission statement, Excellence for all, and illustrated by our broad and balanced curriculum. We believe in the importance of good discipline, positive relationships and effective outcomes. We understand the need to support the development of the whole child and help prepare the adults of tomorrow for their role as useful citizens who make a valuable and worthwhile contribution to their society.
The school will develop as an All Through school, 4-18, beginning with a two form Reception entry in September 2013 and building to full capacity in 2019.
