What says..

Pets lend a family atmosphere. We met Fluffy ‘the slightly evil hamster’ and children eagerly await Marley the rescue rabbit. Come lunch time they troop to the senior school dining hall for a lunch which bears no resemblance to ‘school dinners’.

What the parents say...

Hi I viewed St Dunstans recently with a view to their 4+ intake.

Head

Since September 2015, Mr Paul Cozens BA (40s). He grew up in the south west, was educated at Millfield School and graduated from Exeter University with a BA in educational studies with music and French. Exceptionally non-corporate - even his suit looked relaxed on the day of our visit - Mr Cozens describes himself and the head of the senior school as a Venn diagram with a 50 per cent overlap of core values: Mr Cozens brings much to the party, including music and mindfulness. Previously deputy of St Paul’s Cathedral School, his first posts were at South Hampstead High junior dept and the Beacon School before being appointed as director of studies at Newton Prep.
