Welcome Message

Dysart School offers a safe, positive and challenging environment for our children and young people. We retained our Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ category in September 2015 and we are committed to maintaining excellent standards. At Dysart we have high expectations of and for our pupils and believe that there is no defined limit to their potential.

Leigh Edser - Headteacher


Together we will build a fun, safe and caring school that promotes the joy of learning, high personal achievement, respect for individual differences, dignity for all and equal opportunities by eliminating discrimination.


You are rightly proud of your work around pupil wellbeing, and ensuring pupils are ready for learning.  This has enabled you to establish a calm and purposeful learning environment for pupils with considerable needs.
