About Dumpton School

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 such an enriching and fulfilling environment for children, staff and parents alike.

Described by the Good Schools Guide as 'the perfect size; small enough to have a real family atmosphere and big enough to have proper teams, plays and music. We can't fault it!’

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.
