Word From The Head

Head Photo

James Griffiths

I believe childhood is the most precious period in a person’s life. It is our earliest experiences that help shape healthy and successful futures and this is why it is critical for schools to get education right. At Dallington we understand how fundamental this is.

Our school is a habitat for creativity and wonder, where children are deeply engaged through a play- based, explorative and personalised approach to learning.

We provide a holistic, child-centered
educational experience and prioritise building strong relationships with both children and parents. These key ingredients enable our children’s potential to be unlocked, ensuring they flourish at school and beyond both academically and emotionally as happy, confident individuals.

Dallington is a school with children at its heart in the very heart of London and I feel privileged to be the Head of this vibrant school community.

      School Reviews

      Mumsnet, Parent

      Both our… DCs were encouraged in non-competitive way and flourished. They left the school with what I felt was a genuine love of learning and self motivation which has served them well at secondary… Can’t speak highly enough of the school.  

      Georgina Montanaro, NBH Admissions Manager

      Dallington students are a delight to work with, they arrive to NBH well prepared and confident, immediately becoming assets to our school community.  

      Sarah, Former Parent

      A wonderful first school for both my children - friendly and caring staff with a relaxed and cheerful attitude to education that gives confidence and an enthusiasm to learn that continues today. Thank you Dallington.  

      Ferhan, Former Parent
