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.
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
At Dwight, we understand that our School’s community is enriched by its members’ varying backgrounds. We seek to raise awareness of all protected characteristics:
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage & civil partnerships
- Pregnancy & maternity

At Dwight School London, no single member of our community is the same. Our differences are what makes us strong. We draw on our diversity of thought, experience and vision to build a safe space for all to learn, grow and thrive. In order to ignite the spark of genius in every child, our mission is to ensure everyone feels included.
