To Inspire So That All Flourish
ST DUNSTAN'S COLLEGE
The College prides itself not only on a 100% pass rate since its inception in 1995, but the outstanding results attained at tertiary level. This is attributed to the school’s philosophy that academic excellence is about much more than merely obtaining excellent grades.
It is about preparing students for an academic future that offers each student a plethora of choices wherever in the world their future takes them.

College Academic Report 2022
A sense of normality has returned to the Academic programme this year as students have attended school full-time. The acquisition of a generator that ‘keeps the lights on’ throughout the school during load-shedding has ensured that there has been no disruption to the provision of quality teaching.
The excellent academic results achieved by the Grade 12 students at the end of 2021 bears testimony to the hard work put in by teachers and students, as well as the support received by parents. However, in all grades at the College, students are being prepared to excel to the best of their ability, and, more importantly, to cope with the demands of tertiary education and life after school.
The Student Academic Committee, ably led by Dominic Martins, focused this year on making information related to tests and assessments, as well as making academic notices more easily accessible. Informational documents were created and sent out on WhatsApp groups in order to keep students informed on academic matters.
