Learning for all, Learning for Life
Dallam School is a mixed day and state boarding school for 11-19 year olds, including a dedicated Sixth Form.
We are proud to be an IB World School and have an impressive track record of outstanding examination achievements across GCSE, A Level and the International Baccalaureate®.
At Dallam, one of our greatest strengths is the wonderful community ethos that threads its way throughout school life. Being small enough for every student to be well known as an individual but being large enough to offer a wide range of courses and opportunities, is at the heart of what we stand for.

At Dallam, we aim to give all of our students a rich and rewarding education, filled with exciting opportunities designed to develop independent learning, teamwork and creativity.
During the last few years, there has been over £13m of investment in new facilities across our school, creating a state-of-the-art learning environment for our students.
In addition to our strong academic focus, we offer an extensive extra-curricular programme of sports, arts and Duke of Edinburgh Award activity.
There is a distinctive international ethos here, with special opportunities for learning languages and for visits abroad. Our highly-regarded adventurous curriculum, which is based on the principles of the Dallam Learner Profile and outdoor challenge, also makes us one of the leading providers of outdoor education in the UK.
Our former students have gone on to do many incredible things, and every year we are blown away by the achievements that they share with us as part of the Dallam Alumni Society.
