There are 4 Houses with 3 tutor groups in each House. There is a strong House ethos in school where all strive to do the best for their House, whether it is collecting money for the House Charity, collecting Housepoints, taking part in house competitions or just wearing the house badge with pride.
Each tutor group is a Vertical group, which means that there are students of all year groups together. This group stays together with their tutor for their whole time at St Dunstan’s. It is very much a family ethos with an emphasis on support for others.
