Welcome to the Dundonald High School Website

Dear Reader, 

As Principal and past pupil of Dundonald High School, a fact of which I am extremely proud, I am honoured that you are taking time to read this welcome.

I am delighted to report that we are a school on the move, a school that is driven to achieving excellence in all areas of the curriculum, and indeed, all aspects of your child's life. We are truly a caring school at the heart of the community, and this is a claim I take seriously. We produce well rounded, multi-talented young people who are an asset to our society, contributing positively and enriching the skill set that combines to compliment the already talent rich culture that makes our area so special. This school is a centre of high standards, high expectations, high achievers and high values! You can rest assured of the dedication of my hard working team.

My message is simple and clear, if you do not wish to try your best at all times, treat others the way in which you wish to be treated and to value education, knowledge and learning dearly, then Dundonald High School is not the school for you.

Our pupils and their families are central to our desire to provide a high quality secondary educational facility in the Dundonald area, a school that adds value to its pupils and the economy of the area. You deserve happy children who feel valued, respected and content. Children who are nurtured in an atmosphere that is rich in learning. Children forever growing through their everyday experiences and development of a mindset which values life-long learning,

If what I say rings true to you, then this truly is the school for you. Our results now speak for themselves and the school buildings reflect the investment being made in them to ensure a state-of-the-art secondary school at the heart of our community.

I want to hear your views because, only by working together can we continue to make this wonderful school truly outstanding!

Kind regards
Ken Perry

Out of uniform for Taylor!

5 months ago  Ken Perry
The DHS community is going casual on Friday 9 March 2018 to raise much needed funds for our 2016-17 Deputy Head Girl Taylor Boyd-Long. Many of you will know that Taylor requires life changing surgery for her condition in Barcelona at a cost of £25,000. The event will cost pupils and staff a £1 donation to be entitled to wear casual clothes to school on the day. It is not compulsory to be out of uniform or to pay £1 to the collection, so there is no excuse for our attendance to fall at this event. Mr Perry wishes to assure parents that the day will be a normal school day, even though the dress code is casual. Please get behind us to support Taylor!
