Dorothy Stringer is a lively, vibrant and happy comprehensive school where it is safe to learn and where everyone can play their full part both inside and outside the classroom. We have approximately 1650 students and have high expectations and are ambitious for all of them.

At Dorothy Stringer we have an uncompromising commitment to what is best for our students. Students will need the learning skills, character and attributes that will prepare them for any challenge and set them up for their adult lives. We work to ensure that all students will achieve their full academic potential and challenge them to maximise their achievement in any community that promotes enjoyment in learning. We are proud of the opportunities we offer outside the classroom in areas such as sport, performance, creativity and service.
