History of Dwight

Dwight School London, formerly known as Woodside Park International School and The North London International School, has its roots firmly embedded in North London and has gained a reputation as one of the top schools in Barnet. Opening in 1885 at the Holmewood site, the school later merged with St Alban’s Preparatory School in Woodside Park and then later added Friern Barnet Boys Grammar School.

Since the late 90s the school in London has gained authorisation and a reputation as one of the UK’s leading International Baccalaureate World Schools, and it is now one of just a few international schools in the UK able to offer all three educational programmes of the International Baccalaureate Organisation – the Primary Years Programme (IBPYP), the Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) and the prestigious IB Diploma.

To recognise its status as one of London’s leading international schools, the school changed its name to  'The North London International School' in 2008 and in 2012 it became Dwight School London.

Dwight School London is very active internationally and benefits from its links with its sister school The Dwight School New York and other schools in the Dwight Global group which includes Dwight School Seoul in South Korea, Dwight School Qibao in Shanghai, China and Dwight School Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.
