Dunraven School Overview

Dunraven School’s results are strong, remaining well above national averages and representing positive ‘value- added’. Recognition of our marked progress has been significant and our journey as a school is important to us. For example:

  • in October 2014 we were judged as outstanding in all areas, including both Early Years and the Sixth Form, by Ofsted;
  • in 2016 we were designated as a National Teaching School and an Academy Sponsor, and the Dunraven Educational Trust was established;
  • in September 2018, our Multi Academy Trust was formally set up with the integration of Van Gogh Primary, followed by Goldfinch Primary school in January 2019.

You will join a hardworking, committed team with a positive outlook and dedication to the achievement of our students. 

We also offer:

  • a high standard of professional practice, with bespoke in-house CPD provision, and affiliation to nationally recognised courses and providers (SSAT, Teaching Leaders, Future Leaders, NPQs);
  • clear pathways for career development and progression with a proven track record of success in developing leaders;
  • a supportive and collegiate environment, with regular staff social and sporting activities (such as yoga, football and House events);
  • excellent opportunities for leading work with external partners (National Support School, National Teaching School);
  • a culture of high trust and accountability that values creativity and innovation, leading practice locally and nationally in a range of fields.
