Mission, Aims and Core Values

Dolphin School's mission, is to guide and inspire our children to discover their own unique strengths and talents, by learning through experiencing and doing. We give children the confidence to be individuals, who accept others for who they are and the empathy to understand that their gifts are not theirs alone but are there to be shared with those around them, throughout their lives.



  • Provide a challenging, stimulating and broad curriculum
  • Encourage curiosity and inspire a lifelong love of learning
  • Nurture and celebrate the individual talents of every child
  • Promote academic, artistic, sporting and cultural excellence
  • Develop confident, compassionate, independent-thinking and well-balanced young people
  • Put learning into context within the real world, via an extensive trip programme


Core Values

The power of a Dolphin education lies in the strength of its community and the inspirational teamwork which promotes:

  • Freedom to learn in my own way
  • Confidence to be myself
  • Challenge to excel in what I do
  • Discovery by doing
  • Kindness above all
