• An exciting, challenging, dynamic learning environment

    “I can't imagine my children ever going to another school than Dolphin. There is no other school I've come across which can genuinely encourage a sense of self, without arrogance, and a love of learning without losing perspective of the world around. Above all else, their school days have been joyfully happy. These are gifts which will serve them well for the rest of their lives.”

About us

Dolphin School is a co-educational, independent, preparatory day school and nursery for children between the ages of 3 and 13.

 

We offer children the freedom to learn through the guiding principles of discovery, challenge and ambition. This hands-on approach to education, together with our unique day and residential trip programme in the UK and abroad, bring classroom studies to life and encourage academic excellence and self-confidence.

 

Dolphin School is situated in the rural Berkshire village of Hurst, just off the A4 between Reading and Maidenhead.
