About St. Dunstan’s College
‘Inspiring and assisting young people to achieve their potential’
The history of St Dunstan’s College can be traced back to 1408, making it one of the oldest schools in the country. It still retains strong links with the City of London, from where it originated. For the last 125 years the College has been located in Catford, within the Borough of Lewisham in South East London. The location of the College is a key element in defining its identity and the College is proud of its reflection of the diverse and vibrant community in which it is located. St Dunstan’s is a coeducational school for 867 pupils aged from 3 to 18 years. The Headmaster is a member of HMC (The Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference) and the Head of the Junior School a member of IAPS (The Independent Association of Prep School Heads). The College Leadership Team, chaired by the Headmaster, consists of the Bursar, the Head of Junior School and the Deputy Heads of Senior School. Admission to the College is competitive at all entry points.
The College has seen a number of significant changes in recent years. One major change was the admission of girls in 1994. This has proved highly successful and the College has a truly co-educational ethos. The Pre-preparatory Department was established in 1995 and a Nursery followed in 2008. Both now form part of a flourishing Junior School which sits within the College site and, by extension, is an essential component of College identity. Most Junior School children transfer on to the Senior School as a natural transition. Most parents like to commit to the whole-College ‘family’ and a large proportion of parents have more than one child at the College. The social life of the College is therefore an important feature of its ethos and our ‘Family Society’ is as important in name as it is in what it achieves.
