A family-run, independent, co-educational day school for children aged 3 to 11, in the heart of London

"My passion and determination, combined with an unerring belief that children should be included in their learning and listened to, as they expressed their thoughts, ideas and opinions drove me to create my own school. I did this in 1978 and this characteristic spirit of our school is still in evidence and works!"

Mogg Hercules MBE. Headteacher, Proprietor and Founder

Ted Wragg Lifetime Achievement Award (with Distinction) 2009

At Dallington, we want children to enjoy their childhood, develop a love of learning, independence of thought and retain their individuality. Our expectation is for every child to understand the part it has to play in its learning. The relationships between the staff and the children are informal, but considerate. First names are used and we do not have a school uniform.

We encourage our children to become confident, enthusiastic learners. We offer a topic-based curriculum which is broad, creative and balanced; The Arts are a strong element of our curriculum. Our school is widely creative and the children are encouraged to assume responsibility in a self-regulated, purposeful way.

Our children work and play together in a co-operative, supportive way and great emphasis is placed on nurturing the development of the powers of reasoning and reflective, critical thinking. We provide an environment where children can openly relate to others and expect to be listened to and respected for their points of view.

We have an exemplary record of attaining places prior to and at Secondary level. Children are prepared for external exams in a non-competitive, stress-free environment. A non-competitive ethos does not mean the children lack purpose in their learning.

Personal tours each day of the week. Non-selective entry policy. Early registration advised.
