DLowbirdgeEllis & RPrime

Welcome to Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School

Mr Lowbridge-Ellis & Mr Prime | Headteachers

We want the best for every child, regardless of who they are. That is what drives us. Our golden rule is: if it would not be good enough for our own relatives, it is not good enough for Dame Elizabeth pupils.

We expect pupils to have manners and show respect to each other and their teachers. Anyone who does not show manners and respect is sanctioned and reflects on their behaviour so they make better choices in future. We know parents and carers chose Dame Elizabeth because they wanted a superb learning experience for their children. To that end, we will not allow anyone to steal the learning of others.

We always welcome feedback and, if you want to get in touch or you have general queries, please email enquiry@decschool.co.uk. During the week, we will aim to get back to you within 24 hours.

We are also going to be more active on twitter, so please follow us at @FollowDECTC

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Lowbridge-Ellis (right in photo) and Mr Prime (left in photo)
