Quality education and value for money
As a state boarding school, Dallam offers an excellent all-round education combined with incredible value for money – approximately 50% less than independent boarding schools. State boarding means that tuition fees are paid by the state, so you only pay boarding fees, which are very reasonable.
We offer all service families a 5% discount
For a full year with the service families discount our fees would be £11,552 – £12,872.50.
For forces families in receipt of the CEA, and in accordance with MOD guidelines paying 8% of fees, this would mean an annual fee of only £925.
Benefits of boarding for Dallam’s service children:
- children can build lasting friendships in their classes and in the boarding house with students in all years
- the continuity in education means our teachers can track their progress over time, get to know them and be able to identify when they may need or want additional support
- the combination of our school pastoral team and the house parents, mean that boarding students always have someone to turn to, from simple questions to emotional or academic support
- families can choose full, weekly or part week boarding options. We operate no exeat weekends, which means there’s no requirement to leave on any weekends during term time
- students are encouraged to take part in different clubs and activities – sport, creative, musical or STEM-related and being at boarding means no need to worry about transport.
