Wellbeing & Pastoral Care

Empowering children to thrive through emotional support

At the centre of a Duncombe education is the happiness and wellbeing of our children, empowering them with agency and a positive outlook on life.

Through exceptional pastoral care, our vision is for every child to develop the courage to take on new opportunities, the confidence to overcome challenges, and the integrity to become future global citizens who make their mark in the world and thrive.

Too many good points to pick from but I really appreciate the way the school treats each child as an individual.

Our passionate teachers are more than just educators – they are innovators who bring learning to life, from cross-curricular science activities to orchestrating international ICT projects with Cognita pen pals across the globe.
