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.
