Head PhotoWe strive to give your child roots and wings: roots, so they feel grounded and safe, and wings to fly with ideas and an 'I can' attitude.

Central to a Dunhurst education is the setting - as stimulating as it is picturesque. Sitting within a 120 acre estate, we are surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the rolling South Downs, which we take every opportunity to explore. Our curriculum is broad, and our commitment to encouraging creativity unswerving - a consequence, in part, of the close relationships we foster between our pupils and the adults who care for and teach them.

I firmly believe that young people should be encouraged to aim as high as they can whilst also enjoying their childhood, and benefitting from as many opportunities and experiences as possible. I actively encourage muddy knees!

Whilst Dunhurst is about helping the individual to blossom, this is not pursued at any cost. It is about being yourself, but also about community and mutual respect. Remembering the important things in life - manners, kindness, and the wherewithal to get along with others - is also high on my list. Developing and maintaining strong relationships with our parents is key to this.

I am proud to be Headmaster of Bedales Prep, Dunhurst, and to share with you the delights of a forward thinking and ambitious school. We would love to show you around, so that you can see for yourself what a unique place Dunhurst really is.
