Welcome to Dunalley Primary School.  

We are a warm and vibrant two-form community school in the heart of Cheltenham where all children learn and achieve together.  With our own pre-school and nursery, this ethos carries our learners from their first steps in education through to the cusp of secondary school. 
 
We pride ourselves in ensuring that our enthusiastic learning community benefits and flourishes from a wealth of experiences and opportunities. Innovative programmes, such as Commando Joe's, OPAL Play and Lifesavers, are just a few of the initiatives enriching our children's experience of school and developing the life skills we value so highly.  With our ambitious curriculum and high expectations, we empower all children to embrace learning, achieve their personal best and build​ their emotional, social and physical wellbeing.  Our fabulous grounds and facilities, as well as our location within Cheltenham, provide a stimulating backdrop for this learning.  

In our ever-changing world, we are committed to equipping our children with the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes that will enable them to thrive.  We are very proud of our children and the manner in which they apply themselves to learning and school life. Hopefully, exploring our website will provide you with an insight into life at our school but we would strongly recommend a visit in person for the full Dunalley experience.
