Welcome from the Principal

Shelley dixon 2I am delighted to welcome you to The Dolphin School. We are a vibrant city centre school which sits firmly at the heart of its diverse community. We have an amazing brand new purpose built building which provides our children with an excellent place to learn and grow. Our rich and challenging curriculum focuses on using the local community to support our learning and our children regularly go into the community to find out more about the place they live in.

I am proud to lead a team who are committed to achieving high standards and providing the best opportunities for our children. We prepare children for lifelong learning giving them the skills and enthusiasm needed to pursue learning for the rest of their lives.

As a school we work closely with families, children, staff, governors, Trust and the local community to ensure that the values on which the school is founded on drive our development forward so that The Dolphin School offers children the strongest foundations for learning.
