Welcome to Dallam School – a superb learning environment situated in the stunning beauty of the Lake District. Our school is unique – a highly respected secondary school, international state boarding school and sixth form, where the talents and passions of every student are nurtured and supported by an extraordinary team of highly qualified staff.
I am proud to be the Headteacher of this excellent school. I have a passion for the transformative power of education to improve the lives of our students, regardless of their background or starting point. As a team, we never compromise on the high standards and expectations we have for all our students. Through hard work, determination and a growth mindset, our students experience success in many forms whether that be in academic, sporting or creative fields.
With a heritage and tradition stretching back to 1613, Dallam School is grounded in traditional values, but forward thinking and innovative. Our motto, ‘Learning for all, learning for life’ sums up our approach. Our school values of courage, respect, compassion, endeavour and integrity underpin the life and work of our school. I am proud of the excellent behaviour of all our students, but more importantly, proud of their respect for one another, and how the school community welcomes and celebrates diversity.
Dallam School, Dallam Boarding and Dallam Sixth Form are welcoming, thriving, high performing and inclusive places, where students grow into the very best version of themselves. I look forward to welcoming you into school to see it for yourself and chat to our amazing students and staff. Until then, our website, Twitter pages @DallamSchool, @DallamSixthForm and @DallamBoarding, Dallam School Facebook page and virtual tours will give you a flavour of what we are all about and the many opportunities available here.
