Welcome to Dorothy Stringer

Dorothy Stringer is a vibrant, stimulating and happy community – a place where everyone is encouraged to play their part, both inside and outside the classroom. We aim to create a learning environment that meets the needs of every one of our students.

Today’s young people face a world that is changing at an ever-increasing pace. As a school we have a duty to prepare them for their adult lives. We firmly believe the five-year experience at Dorothy Stringer will help to unlock their full potential and instil a lifelong love of learning.

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 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 are a community with clear moral values and where there is a sense of belonging and identity. We work hard to engage our community, to develop partnerships with parents and carers and to secure their interest, support and commitment. 

At Dorothy Stringer our motto is ‘Education for Life’ we have three core values creativity, resilience and respect, our school values guide everything we do, to read about our core values and to see our Senior Leadership team click on the links below.
