Beyond the classroom

We believe what makes a great school is the breadth and depth of learning and experience it offers its students. We want our students to gain in-depth knowledge during their time at Dallam and acquire the skills and experiences necessary for success in life, all while fostering a sense of happiness and fulfilment during their time with us.  

Extra-curricular learning 

We provide a dynamic learning environment where students are encouraged to explore a wide range of subjects and activities. Our curriculum reflects society’s evolving needs and encompasses scientific, humanities, linguistic, artistic, technological, and social advancements.  

Through innovative teaching methods and inclusive practices, we aim to unlock every student’s full potential and allow them to flourish in their own way. 

Duke of Edinburgh Award  

For over 30 years, we’ve been proud providers of this prestigious programme. Participants not only gain valuable skills such as confidence, independence, and problem-solving abilities but also cultivate a sense of achievement and improve their fitness and health. With the natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park and the Morecambe Bay coastline right on our doorstep, students have ample opportunities to engage in physical, skills-based, and volunteering activities as part of their Duke of Edinburgh journey. 

Residential trips  

Our commitment to an enriched learning experience is shared through school trips. From our surroundings here in the Lake District World Heritage Site to the snow-capped peaks of Austria and the historic streets of Berlin, our students go on unforgettable journeys. These trips broaden their horizons and foster cultural understanding and global awareness.
