A sixth-month educational and cultural experience in the UK
It’s time to immerse your child in a fantastic educational experience in the most stunning part of the UK
The Dallam Experience is an educational and cultural experience that builds your child’s confidence with English language through professional tuition as well as immersive learning by attending a range of subject classes at the school and mastering conversational skills with friends. The Dallam Experience is not just about academic learning; through a broad range of structured activities and trips, your child will enjoy an active and culturally rich time while with us.
After the wonderful time Andrea had on The Dallam Experience, we’re making sure her younger sister has the same fabulous opportunity. – Gonzalo and Natalia, Spain
Martha was so happy during the last six months, made good friends both at school and the boarding house and had an exciting time. She liked the school routine, her classes and her teachers, and the countless activities during the week and on the weekends with you. – Birgit and Karsten, Germany
Why at Dallam?
A warm welcome will greet your child when they arrive at Dallam. Cumbria is known for its friendly people; just what your child needs to help them settle in quickly so they can start making the most of their Dallam Experience.
Located in the safe British countryside, between two National Parks – The UNESCO Lake District World Heritage Site and the Yorkshire Dales – and the coastline on the doorstep it is easy to see why this part of the UK inspired world-famous writers and artists such as Wordsworth and JMW Turner.
Your child can choose from a range of subjects* from our broad curriculum taught by our experienced and enthusiastic faculty members. In their free time our team can help your child make the most out of their experience with fun days out with their new friends; hiking, biking, paddleboarding and more. Day trips to Manchester, Liverpool and Edinburgh are also within easy reach.
*Places for all classes are subject to availability.
