Meet our Head of Secondary

Posted: May 6, 2016

I have had a fantastic first week at DC getting to know staff, students and parents, and I am so grateful for the warm welcome I have received. It’s clear to me already that DC is a very special place, and I look forward to meeting many more of you over the coming weeks.

In particular I am really interested in getting to know the members of our parent community, both in Primary and in Secondary, and so would like to invite you to come and have coffee with me at 8.30am on Wednesday 18 May here at DC. It is a great chance for me to learn more about you and your family and to hear about what the experience of being a DC parent is all about. If you are interested, please send an email to Claudia Richardson (, and I very much look forward to meeting you in a short while.

James Smith
Head of Secondary
