A very warm welcome to Dormston School. I hope you and your families are all well. We are looking forward to meeting our new Year 7 students for our 2 days Induction later this term (Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 July 2022).

Alongside our 2 days induction we are committed to supporting you and your child’s move to year 7 in September and hope that the information contained in this transition section of our website will help answer most of your questions and allay any worries as you will find lots of information and activities to help prepare you and your child for secondary school. 

All of this will be available to view on our website from 27/06/2022.

On Tuesday 5th July 2022 there will also be a Parents’ Evening starting at 6:00pm. During this evening you will have an opportunity to meet your child’s Form Tutor and other members of staff.

  • Music Lessons with Dudley Performing Arts

            We are working with Dudley Performing Arts (DPA) to provide music lessons in school and now is a fantastic time to start learning a musical instrument!              The team at DPA have decades of experience and are the biggest provider of music education in our area. Students can begin lessons for as little as                    £7.50 a session so if you would like your child to start learning simply click on the link below to find out how it works.

            Learning a musical instrument is a great thing for young people to do. It can help in all sorts of ways and research suggests that it can help children                    develop academically and socially.  Lessons take place at school making it easy to fit in around your busy family lives and we hope that you will take up              this amazing offer.

Following on from our two day induction at Dormston we would like to confirm there will be a Year 7 day on Tuesday 6th  September. The school will be open to Year 7 students only as an introduction to Year 7. Students need to bring their bags and equipment. Children should arrive at Dormston for 8.40am and enter through the atrium doors at the main entrance where they will be met by staff. We would like to wish you all a very well deserved summer break and look forward to seeing our new Year 7 shortly.
