Head's Welcome

Hello.  My name is Linda Kiernan. 

I am the new Interim Head at Dallington and I will be here until the school and I find just the right person to take Dallington on its onward journey. I am a highly experienced Head and I have worked in Inner London Primary schools for the whole of my career.

Separately from that I have a Classics degree and I also taught Classics for the Open University in the evening for over 20 years to people from the ages of 18 - 80. I live in the Barbican, I ride a bicycle and I like very bright clothes and lots of jewellery!

I read a great deal for relaxation and I am particularly interested in fine art, music, history, languages and travel. 

I very much looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible and welcoming you to our unique school.

Best wishes,


Dallington - a school that will let your child's personality fly high!

  • Dallington School is like a gem in the city… the kids don't feel pressured however they do feel… a wish to achieve.  This is brilliant – trust the children and provide them with the space and education to help them grow.  My child has become really inquisitive about the world since starting at Dallington.

  • 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.

  • I'm so impressed with the way that Dallington's swung into action - from a letter at 5.30 one afternoon to being totally up and running for home school by 9 the next morning is a massive achievement. The kids are totally engaged, and I can't thank Milko and Ed enough for their calmness in dealing with it all, and the way that they're keeping the kids enthusiastic. They're really happy, and so am I (and relieved!). Thanks everyone, and keep up with the good work, I really am seriously impressed....

  • 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.
