Dunbar is Pangbourne's Junior House, catering for boys and girls in Forms 1 and 2. The Junior House is located in quiet surroundings, overlooking beautiful land and providing a purpose-built hub for the students to rest, play and board.
The House is only a short walk from the rest of the Pangbourne College campus where the Dunbar pupils make full use of and enjoy all of the teaching rooms and facilities.
Dunbar aims to foster a sense of belonging and responsibility in its pupils and prides itself on developing the confidence of young boys and girls, giving them a firm foundation they can build upon as they move up through Pangbourne.
The experienced team of Junior House staff and teachers support pupils' transition from primary or prep school to senior school by creating a happy atmosphere in which students are encouraged to be confident.
Dunbar pupils have their own playing field, called the Piggeries, and can make the most of the facilities such as the table football, pool table and 50” TV in the House.
Dunbar is named after one of the clipper ships belonging to the Devitt and Moore shipping company that first set up Pangbourne as a Nautical College in 1917 before it took the name Pangbourne College and then later became a co-educational school.
