About Our School

At Dowson Comprehensive our staff are dedicated, caring and experienced in supporting students aged 11 to 16 catering for a wide range of needs.

This expertise, coupled with a broad, rich curriculum, as well as a highly engaging specialist arts programme supports our students well to embed the key skills of communication, reading, writing, maths and independence.

All students have access to the National Curriculum and are divided into year groups and sub-divided into smaller tutor groups. Students enjoy a variety of performance opportunities and benefit from excellent links with our diverse community beyond the school setting. Our students tell us that they like the calm atmosphere and appreciate having their own views listened to by staff.

We are very proud of our reputation as a warm, welcoming, school. Staff and governors invite close partnership working with parents, carers and multi-agency practitioners. We recognise that parents play an important role in the education of their children and as such, we welcome your support and co-operation in making your child’s time at Dowson Comprehensive.
