A welcoming school

Set in the beautiful countryside in the north of England, Dallam School offers day and boarding students a place to:

  • achieve academically;
  • enjoy a wide range of creative and outdoor opportunities; and
  • develop into a responsible and caring individual.

As a co-educational, state boarding school with sixth form for 11-19 year olds we can offer students a full and exciting school life at a significantly lower cost than independent boarding schools. Contact us today about joining our school, Sixth Form or boarding house.
