What our Students and Staff Say

What our Students and Staff say...

Mrs Iles

English Teacher

Students at The Duston School are very inquisitive. I really enjoy feeding their curiosity and hearing some interesting viewpoints in return. Similarly, staff are also keen to ask the difficult questions: being a member of the Duston Action Research Team, I’ve loved having the opportunity to challenge myself and discuss ways to develop our knowledge and expertise as teachers.

I also have the privilege of being Head of Willow House and I am very proud of the fact that Willow managed to win the first House Trophy last year. Having been in third place for the majority of the year, it was wonderful to see that the dedication, hard work and team spirit of the students paid off. I really enjoy working with the tutors and other members of the staff body to organise opportunities for the students to demonstrate their talents and develop a healthy sense of competition; last year’s Sports Day and Student Showcase were just two examples of when the students came together to celebrate each other’s achievements.

I work to support and empower students to ensure that they get the most out of their time at The Duston School
