Thank you to all the students for their mature and responsible approach to the new rules around face coverings. Our students have been great at supporting the community by wearing face coverings in communal areas.

Contacting members of staff

If any parents and carers need to contact a member of staff, they should email admin@dunbargrammar.elcschool.org.uk

We kindly ask that parents and carers do not contact teachers directly via their edubuzz email addresses.

Attention – ALL Art and Design Students 🙂

Given the current pandemic and the restrictions we have in place to ensure everyone is a as safe and healthy as can be; we are giving all of our students the opportunity to purchase their own materials pack for personal use both in class and at home. Due to the practical, hands-on, nature of our subject we have a high level of material and resource sharing amongst all of our students. Offering students the opportunity to purchase individual material packs is one of our measures to minimise risk.

Look out in your child’s Google Classroom next week for ordering and content details for the S1-S3 BGE pack and the S4-S6 Personalised Senior pack!
