School Organisation

St. Dunstan’s Catholic Primary School is attached to Dunstan’s Catholic Church in Woking, Surrey. The school is set in attractive grounds in a residential area to the south of the town centre.  It is a Voluntary Aided School for Catholic children aged 4 - 11 Years.

The partnership between school, home and Parish is essential, as we believe that children develop best within this close community.  Our Parish Priest and school Chaplain are regular visitors to school.  Liturgies and Mass are celebrated regularly and parents are always welcome to join us in prayer.

The School
St. Dunstan’s Catholic Primary School is a three form entry, high achieving school, which caters for pupils aged 4 to 11 years old.  There are currently 630 children on roll.

The school is set in spacious, pleasant and mature grounds. It's excellent facilities include an all-weather pitch, swimming pool, extensive sports fields, an outdoor environmental area and a dance/music studio all of which provide the children with a wide range of learning opportunities.

History of the school
The first entry in the official log book states: "The school opened on September 3rd with 137 children on roll and three full time assistant teachers, a secretary and three dinner supervisors."

That was in 1957, but the history of the school goes back even further.

Canon O'Connor, the Parish Priest of Woking, had planned to build a school for the young Catholic children of the Parish, but it was not until the Red House in Onslow Crescent became vacant that his dream was realised.

Eventually, the property was purchased and renovated and made ready for its first intake - twenty children under the care of Sister Conrad.  More and more children arrived and whilst they worked, the builders began to clear the site and to lay the foundations of the new school. This was opened in 1957, with Miss Enright as the Head Teacher of the Infants and Sister Conrad Head Teacher of the Juniors. Two schools housed in one building but both under the patronage of St. Dunstan’s.

The first St. Dunstan’s Primary School was officially opened by Archbishop O'Hara, the Apostolic Delegate for Great Britain on May 22nd l958 but in 1971, with the opening of St Francis First School nearby,  St Dunstan’s became a Middle School for 8 - 12 year olds.  With Surrey's decision to revert to Primary education, St Dunstan’s Primary School was opened in September 1993 and blessed by Cormac, Bishop of Arundel & Brighton, on January 14 1994.
