Dorothy Stringer is a vibrant, stimulating and happy community where it is safe to learn and where everyone can excel both inside and outside the classroom. We are ambitious for our students’ progress and attainment and strive to create an environment that promotes a keen enjoyment of learning. Today’s students face a world that is changing at an ever-increasing pace and we have a duty to prepare them for their adult lives. We value and promote self-discipline, creativity, independence, self-confidence and the ability to work collaboratively with others. We work to ensure that all our students achieve their full academic potential. However, we believe that school is not just about academic success: we want our students to thrive and to develop holistically. We are immensely proud of the wide range of opportunities we offer outside the classroom in sport, performance, creativity and service. We excel at nurturing our students in a safe and happy environment and believe that schools need to care for the emotional wellbeing of their students and understand their personal needs. We have created an atmosphere where students can be themselves and they are known and supported as individuals. Students take pride in our school and in their own achievement as well as in the achievement of others. We are a community which is based on clear moral values and where there is a sense of belonging and identity. We work hard to develop partnerships with parents and carers and to secure their interest, support and commitment. We aim to be a community to which everyone wants to belong and where all feel respected and valued. Matt Hillier | Headteacher
