Headteacher's Welcome

Dallington is a unique school with a strong tradition of inclusive, child-focused learning which was founded by the fearlessly innovative Mogg Hercules MBE, over forty years ago.

I am honoured to be a part of the incredibly strong and established Dallington team that led the school to an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ award in January 2018.

I am quietly confident that I have a huge amount to offer the Dallington community, not least my thirty years of excellent and vibrant teaching and leadership, gained in many diverse schools around the world.

All my work and innovation has been underpinned by my belief in every child’s fundamental right to experience an education that nurtures a belief in themselves as valued, empowered and informed; to be challenged to expect the best of themselves and of the adults in their lives – in school, in the home and in their communities.

Many of the children I have taught and worked alongside have been destined for positions of great influence in their countries – nurturing these minds and helping them to deeply understand the world they will inherit has been the greatest responsibility and one that I continue to carry and indeed, enjoy at Dallington.

  • 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.
