Primary Phase

Your child is an individual –– they deserve a unique, personalised education.

I became a teacher because I could not think of a more rewarding profession than one where every day I experience the joy and the honour of creating an environment that allows young minds to dream, create, believe, excel and feel a true sense of worth and belonging. I hope to inspire children to strive for excellence for themselves, their friends, family and community, to know that they are unique, respected and can make a real difference.

At The Duston School we hope to inspire children to strive for excellence for themselves, their friends, family and community, to know that they are valued, respected and can make a real difference.

I have been a Headteacher in Northamptonshire for the past fourteen years. My previous school achieved its first outstanding OFSTED rating in 2004 and we retained this outstanding rating through two more OFSTED inspections in 2007 and 2010, consistently achieving end of key stages results that placed us within the top 5% of schools in the country.

As a school, we firmly believe that we do not achieve these results by applying a one size fits all approach to the children in our care. If you choose to send your child to The Duston School, you will be sending your child to a school where we will strive to find their best way to learn, we will enhance their gifts and talents, and ensure they are confident well rounded individuals who have a high level of respect for their family, friends and environment. Your child will be safe, well cared for, be treated with respect and you will be able to become a true partner in their education. 

Our organisational model means we can provide a dynamic all-through education from the age of four to nineteen, ensuring that there is clear continuity through all stages of learning. We have an outstanding secondary provision married with a primary pedagogy which has been recognised as outstanding in 3 previous Ofsted inspections; ensuring tailored bespoke learning programmes can be implemented meeting the needs of all learners. Quality resources such as art studios, Creative Technology workshops, science laboratories, food technology rooms and superb sports facilities (including a swimming pool) will enhance your child’s education.

We look forward to working with you and your child.
