St Dunstan's School is a secondary school in Glastonbury, Somerset, England. The school has 586 students between the ages of 11 and 16 years.[1] It is named after St. Dunstan, an abbot of Glastonbury Abbey, who went on to become the Archbishop of Canterbury in 960AD.

The school was a 'new-build' in 1958 with major building work, at a cost of £1.2 million, in 1998, adding the science block and the sports hall. It was designated as a specialist Arts College in 2004 and the £800,000 spent at this time paid for the Performing Arts studio and facilities to support students with special educational needs.[2] In 2011, the school became an academy. Most recently, headteacher Jo Stevenson announced her retirement in March 2013. In addition to this, an Ofsted report in October 2012 showed the school "Requires Improvement", ranking it one of the lowest rated schools in the South West of England. In September 2013, the school welcomed new headteacher Kevin Griffiths.
