What says..

There are some quirks – reading books are given, not chosen, until year 2; no pens for hand-writing by year 2 (only for display work) – but we noted the careful thinking behind every decision. Children certainly appeared very happy in every classroom, enthusiastically involved with their activities: making a potion of ‘yukky’ words, completing jigsaws of the organs of the human body, sequencing numbers to 20 by ordering themselves into a line, or working intently on...

What the parents say...

I am currently looking at St Dunstans and the Herne Hill School, my only draw back about the Herne Hill School was the fact the child will have to move at 7+ which is another big change for them.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headteacher

Since September 2016, Ngaire Telford (pronounce Nyree), previously deputy head. All four of her children have been through the school, and she has worked here since 2007, first as EYFS co-ordinator. She is a New Zealander who qualified and taught there for two years before coming to teach in London in 1993. She has taught in both the state and independent sectors with experience across the whole primary age range.

Entrance

Three points of entry: into the kindergarten at 2+, into pre-reception at 3+ or into reception at 4+. Each entry point has its own registration deadline and assessment month, with some sibling priority given. Early registration is key, as this is the dominant factor in the allocation of places, hence there are elements of a mixed ability intake here.
