What's On Guide

Please see attached our What's On Guide.

The school offers provision for students between the hours of 8.30am and 4.30pm.

 

Research from the Independent Schools Council has found that attainment and progress is higher in schools that offer a diverse and extensive range of extra-curricular activities. This is something that Dormston fully supports and as a result, are continuing to strive to provide the best extra-curricular programme we can for our students.

 

Extra-curricular clubs and trips are a fantastic way for students to build their confidence, develop their social skills, explore interests and learn new talents. At Dormston we encourage each student to get involved and join a range of clubs and currently offer a wide range of school trips. Students are rewarded for their efforts and will receive house points for each club they attend. If students have attended all sessions during a half term, they will receive an additional 5 house points per club to reward their commitment.

 

We continually review the extra-curricular programme offered through conducting regular pupil voice surveys and by liaising with our student leadership team. At Dormston, we strive to continue to implement a range of clubs and extra-curricular trips across the school.

Staffing Update

We are pleased to inform you that we have successfully recruited another Science Teacher; Mrs Pajaj who will be starting with us in September 2019. You can find out more about Mrs Pajaj in our September/October Update Sheet. Mrs Vyse, Science Teacher who joined us in April 2019 will however unfortunately be leaving us in July 2019 due to personal commitments. Dance Teacher, Miss Knight who was with us on a temporary basis will also sadly be leaving us. We will also be saying goodbye to Mr Lee, Head of Maths in July 2019 as he has been promoted to Assistant Principal for Behaviour & Safeguarding at RSA Academy. Mrs Jacques however will be Acting Head of Maths in the interim so worry not, the Maths Department is in safe hands! We will also be saying goodbye to Mrs Baker, Head of MFL and Mrs Windmill, English Teacher in July 2019. They have both worked at Dormston for a number of years and will be sadly missed by staff and pupils. Mrs Baker has been a great teacher and Head of Department and her passion for MFL has inspired so many students over the years; with many of them going on to study MFL at colleges and universities. Mrs Baker is also well known for her creativity and has encouraged countless students to take up arts and crafts. Mrs Windmill is an expert in Shakespeare and has awakened a passion for literature in many past and current students. She has also been heavily involved in all of our school productions, including pushing numerous full size cars onto the stage in Grease and Blues Brothers and also making several children ‘fly’. We would like to thank them both for all their hard work and commitment over the years and wish them well in the next chapter of their lives.
