A non-returnable fee of £50 per child is charged when a child is registered with the school. Please complete and return the enclosed Application Form, together with the Registration Fee, to the Headmaster.
Entry in to the Prep School
There is no entry exam but all children are informally assessed before the offer of a place is made, to ensure that they will be able to cope with the curriculum.
A deposit of £250 per child is payable when the offer of a place at the school is accepted. This will be returned to you upon settlement of all outstanding monies when your child leaves the school. Should you withdraw your child before they take up their place, the deposit will not be refundable, except on medical or compassionate grounds.
Dumpton aims to educate children in a supportive, caring environment, within a framework of family and Christian values, stressing the importance of teamwork and mutual respect at all times. Rule number one is ‘Treat others as you would like them to treat you’.
All children are expected and encouraged to fulfil their potential. Given the excellent facilities and high staff to pupil ratio, Dumpton is well-placed to aim for high academic and extra curricular standards.
In addition we want to help children develop a clear sense of right and wrong, to become confident communicators and to appreciate the importance of good manners, friendliness and tolerance.
The atmosphere in school is cheerful and positive, created by the strong relationships between adults and children, and between the children themselves. Great emphasis is made of the fact that a child who is happy and enjoys being at school is far more likely to do well.
