Dallam School 

At Dallam, we aim to give all of our students a rich and rewarding education, filled with exciting opportunities designed to develop independent learning, team work and creativity. Our reputation for academic excellence goes back more than 400 years to our foundation by Edward Wilson in 1613. Since then, we have continued to provide an outstanding education for young people in both the immediate area and from around the world. 

Opportunity underpins a diverse and flexible curriculum. We provide a unique learning environment in which students can choose from a wide range of academic and vocational opportunities. These range from GCSEs, BTECs and A Levels to the highly regarded International Baccalaureate. Practical work, discussion, visits, research and IT-based study are all designed to equip our students with the skills they need to become active, lifelong learners. 

Our inclusive ethos also meets both the academic and vocational needs of all our students, from those with exceptional talents to those with special educational needs. Dallam is also one of the country’s leading providers of outdoor education. The principles of challenge and adventure are embedded across the whole curriculum. 

We want all of our students to be happy and to feel valued, and we believe that good communication between home and school is vital to a student’s education. Our outstanding pastoral system provides a caring and supportive environment that safeguards the emotional and social needs of all our students, as well as ensuring their personal development and wellbeing.
