Open Morning

07 September 2016

Dumpton is a happy school with purposeful pupils and committed, approachable staff. This is a powerful combination which lies at the heart of the ‘special atmosphere’ often referred to by first-time visitors. 

The beautiful location and excellent facilities play their part, but it is the quality of relationships throughout the school that creates su​ch an enriching and fulfilling environment for children, staff and parents alike. 

Choosing the right school for your child is a major decision, so please take the time to visit us and experience for yourself the friendly family atmosphere here at Dumpton. 

We can certainly promise you a very warm welcome!
