Vision & Mission

Dwight School London prepares young people to become leaders in the world. Our students thrive in a curriculum rooted in our three educational pillars. The first is personalised learning; the second, a commitment to community; the third, our global vision.

Personalised Learning

Personalised programmes extend, challenge and support each student. Our student body comprises a range of academic ability and talent, and we pride ourselves on meeting each student’s needs through the International Baccalaureate Programmes. Based on international standards of excellence, Dwight is committed to realising each student's potential by finding and nurturing their “Spark of Genius”.


Our commitment to the IB ensures each child’s personal development is shaped by the Learner Profile which fosters leadership, initiative and service learning. Students are inspired and educated to make a positive difference to their school, to their communities and to the world. We seek to strengthen the relationships between home and school, and relationships within the school, to maintain an open, welcoming and supportive community.

Global Vision

Our community is made up of a diverse community of students from all over the world. The IB Programmes provide challenges and opportunities that emphasise intercultural awareness while encouraging students to become global thinkers and thus global citizens. Our school extends into other regions of the world through the range of cultures and experiences of our students, and the global network of schools.

Our PhilosophyDwight School London has a commitment to delivering our ethos through every student experience - whether it be academic learning, programmes, or personal activities. We strive for academic excellence and we help to build confident, compassionate young people who influence the future.

Our VisionTo produce students who are inquiring, knowledgeable and caring, while fostering their academic growth. Dwight School London prepares students to move on to further education, to be active, and to be desirable citizens and learners, gaining places at top universities around the world.

Our ValuesAs a school our values align very much with the International Baccalaureate’s Learner profile. The traits of Leadership, Curiosity, Thinking & Knowledge, Communication, Integrity, Compassion, Open-mindedness, Balance and Reflection are key to who we are as a school learning community. 

The IB Mission StatementThe International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organisation works with schools, governments and international organisations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

Diversity, Equality and Inclusion

Our goal is to ensure that our school is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children. We recognise that children and their families come from diverse backgrounds, and that all families have needs and values that arise from their socio-economic, ethnic, cultural and/or religious backgrounds. Children grow up in diverse family structures that include - but are not limited to - two-parent, single-parent and same-sex parents. While some children have close links with extended families of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, others may be more removed from close kin, or may live with other relatives or foster carers.Our statement
