About Dolphin School
Dolphin first opened its doors in 1970 as a Montessori Nursery and almost immediately acquired a reputation for instinctive and progressive education, based on sound principles and a philosophy that is maintained to this day. For over forty years Dolphin students have explored the intellectual world around them and derived a genuine thrill from learning. From Year Two onwards, subject specialist teachers deliver the broad and stimulating curriculum, which, combined with an extensive day and residential trip programme, results in children who love coming to school. A carefully structured learning programme is designed to bring out the very best in every child. Beginning in Year Three with a three-day stay in East Sussex, the programme covers locations both at home and abroad and ends in Year Eight with almost two weeks in Italy. We also offer extensive mountain walking opportunities from Year Four in locations ranging from the Brecon Beacons to the Alps. Associated costs of trips are included in the fees, and there are around 60 day trips and at least 13 residential and international trips each year.
Whether in Maths, English, Science, Drama or Sport, students regularly win major scholarships to England’s leading public schools and places at the most sought after local grammar schools. More importantly, the love of learning developed at Dolphin helps them become interesting people, leading fulfilling lives.
Today the school has a flourishing Old Delphinian group who frequently attend reunions and visit the school to offer workshops in their fields of expertise, or talk to the children.
