St Dunstan’s College and Rosemead Preparatory School to merge
South London day schools St Dunstan’s College and Rosemead Preparatory School are to merge this month.
St Dunstan’s head, Nick Hewlett, said: “We are delighted to be bringing our schools together, which will strengthen and enrich both our communities. The two schools have a long and deep commitment to a values-driven education, preparing our young students for the world of tomorrow.
“The merger will be a wonderful opportunity for our two schools, one set in the heart of Catford, and the second in the heart of Dulwich, to work closer together, learning from one another and enhancing our students’ educational journeys. The merger will also offer greater protection to both schools from ongoing political and economic challenges.
“I look forward to working closely with the dedicated team at Rosemead and I know staff, students and parents at St Dunstan’s will welcome the news with warmth.’
Rosemead’s chair of governors Nick Crawford added: “This is a wonderful opportunity for both schools. Rosemead and St Dunstan’s have always shared a very similar ethos and this will allow the schools to work closely together to further that. Whilst we will preserve the autonomy of Rosemead, we look forward to sharing best practice, and the many benefits and enhancements this will bring the school.”
