Welcome from the Headteacher

JulieOConnor_1.pngWelcome to Dowdales – a school where we believe in high expectations, excellent teaching and ambition for every young person.

Our shared vision is that your child deserves an outstanding education and so we set ourselves challenging objectives – everyone aiming to be the best we can be in all that we do. Dowdales is an exciting place to be. I am proud to be Headteacher and to work with the staff and students to make it more than just a school.

The relationship that we have with parents and carers is extremely important to us. I hope that you will find the words and images on our website useful and that it gives you a flavour of our dynamic and supportive learning community. If you would like to know anything more about the school please do not hesitate to get in touch.
