The Duchy School

Headteacher’s Welcome



Welcome to The Duchy School website. Across the site you will find out about life at this vibrant, caring and happy school community. We are committed to providing all children with a first class educational experience and our most recent Ofsted inspection reflected this commitment, when we were judged to be ‘outstanding’ across all areas.

At The Duchy School we are committed to creating an environment in which all children feel safe and valued. We provide a curriculum which is challenging, stimulating and creative and which inspires children to want to learn, so that they are able to become responsible, independent thinkers and learners. We offer them the opportunity to explore different languages and cultures, encourage the appreciation of the creative and performing arts and become proficient with the use of all forms of information technology.

We are a healthy and active school community, highly successful across all sporting arenas and where effort and achievement are celebrated by all.  If you visit our school, you will be aware of a sense of purposeful calm, of children happy in their work and play. The children would be delighted to show you what makes The Duchy School such a special place.

Mrs Alison Bourne, Headteacher
