Welcome to The Dolphin School
"Happy Members of the World Community"
Resilience - Respect - Responsibility - Curiosity
Please note our next Open Day times :
Open Day for new parents and carers interested in sending their child to The Dolphin School is Monday 9th January 2017 9:30am-11:30am.
Our drive for excellence is based upon the characteristics of effective learning which cannot be fully achieved without embracing the world beyond the school gates.
We understand that we can support and learn from our community in many different ways.
"They make me have fresh memories and I really love Dolphin School" - words of a Dolphin School pupil.
Exceptional academic standards are only part of our story as we continually encourage our children to explore, invent and create beyond the school building. When your child joins TDS you join too - an innovative, diverse and dynamic community with a thriving PTA.

- Developing teamworking skills
- Building stronger relationships between students and staff
- Able to learn by seeing and doing
- Increased sense of wellbeing and healthy choices
- Increased independence and developments of social skills
