About Us

Every day when I leave school I ask myself this same question: ‘Have I made a difference today?’

It’s a very simple question, but one which often generates some thoughtful and revealing answers.

At Dove House we’re guided by this simple question. In fact, everything the school does is designed to make a difference to our children and their families.

This website has been created to help answer the questions many parents ask when they first visit our school, and so I hope that it will answer some of yours.

More importantly, I hope it will inspire you to ask many more.   If it does, do please contact the school office, and continue your own discovery of what the Dove House experience is all about.

Acting Head Teacher

At Dove House we like to think of ourselves as a welcoming school and we enjoy showing prospective parents and carers our community. Whether already having a place confirmed or researching all available options for your child,  we encourage parents and carers to visit the school.

With the current situation unfortunately, that is not possible.  To support you making decisions and also to help our new pupils currently in year 6 with their induction, our pastoral team has put together a short video to give you a guided tour of our school.

In reality a school is composed of the people within, not the buildings, but hopefully this will give you some indication of what life will be like at Dove House.
