Your first choice for State Boarding

Dallam School, based at the entrance to the stunning Lake District, offers an exceptional all-round education for students aged 11-19.

We are proud to be one of only 40 state boarding schools in the country. With a dedicated boarding house located just under two miles from the main school, in the beautiful village of Heversham, Dallam offers a truly home-from-home experience for every one of our students.

Our parents say that state boarding is an excellent alternative to independent education, as our fees are very much lower than in equivalent independent schools. This is because parents only pay for boarding accommodation. All educational costs relating to the school itself are paid by the State.

With a history dating back to 1613, at Dallam we are incredibly proud of our prestigious heritage, coupled with our 21st Century approach to education.

What our students say:

“Boarding at Dallam was a truly wonderful experience, I built friendships for life.  I loved being able to try out so many new things, surrounded by the incredible scenery of the Lake District.”

“At Dallam there is this unique atmosphere, once you’ve experienced it, you never want to miss it. Even now- almost a year after leaving- stories are laughed about, memories are reminded of and friendships are for life.”

“I am really proud to be part of the big family at Dallam Boarding. In boarding there are lots of people from different countries which gives us great opportunities to learn different cultures and languages. But the most important thing is meeting new friends.”

“People at Dallam are kind and caring and they push you to do things that you wouldn’t normally do by yourself.”
