Welcome to Dormston

Dormston is a large secondary school with over 1100 students in years 7 to 11. It is situated in the heart of Sedgley, near Dudley in the West Midlands and we are honoured to be a part of, and support our local community. Dormston has a long and proud tradition, having been established in 1935 and originally consisting of a single two-storey building. We have grown considerably since those early days but still place the same emphasis on providing quality education for every student. We believe that ‘Knowledge Is Strength.’

Our vision “aims to inspire confident, motivated students who have a passion for learning and are fully equipped to contribute to society” and we expect every pupil to commit to our core values of:

Effort, Knowledge, Respect, Responsibility, Resilience

Knowledge is Strength

Thank you for taking the time to visit our school’s website. Everyone connected to Dormston is very proud of our school. Over the past few years the community has worked tirelessly to create a school where our young people can enjoy and reach their academic potential. Standards are high and improving year on year.
