Dallington School is a young British school which offers an extended curriculum and the best of traditional and new methodologies. Both the Infant and Primary sites are located in one of the most attractive areas of Madrid, Parque Conde de Orgaz, near Arturo Soria.
Dallington School will eventually cater for pupils from 2 to 18 years old. In the next academic year 2018-2019 the School will have over 260 pupils from Pre-Nursery to Key Stage 2 (Year 5).
Dallington School’s fundamental aim is to provide a broad and challenging curriculum in an educational context where all pupils are happy, have strong values, are knowledgeable, skilful, and creative. The School itself offers a warm, friendly environment, where pupils feel at home and enjoy their learning. The staff team is characterised by its deep commitment to education and fundamental human values. The team is determined to support and facilitate the pupils’ progress and to maintain this ambience of care, mutual respect, self-belief and confidence.
At Dallington, we really see each child as an individual. Each pupil has a specific range of intelligences and abilities, interests, and ways of learning. Our approach to education gets the best out of everyone and strongly supports pupils’ overall personal and academic development, for example their self- confidence, effort, communication and thinking skills, teamwork, and social and global awareness.
To this end, we have a very favourable pupil-teacher ratio, fully qualified British teachers, qualified support staff, a rigorous system of quality control and self- review, and a programme of continuous professional development, focusing on innovative and creative approaches to teaching and learning.
Dallington School is firmly committed to education in values. We help our pupils learn the importance of the family, loving relationships and friendships, respect and care for others, generosity, hard work and commitment, perseverance, and responsibility. Spiritual education is another important feature of Dallington School, both within our innovative personal, social, health, and emotional education (PSHE) and our optional Catholic Education programme, which includes preparation for the First Communion.
In relation to health education, we strongly believe that children will only adopt a healthy lifestyle if they live that way from a very young age, and are given the appropriate guidance and support. For that reason, our school menus exclusively make use of ecological products and we place significant emphasis on physical education. Apart from our own play and sports facilities, we also have access to nearby sports centres and clubs in Parque Conde Orgaz.
