Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Dwight School London, a school where we are dedicated to crafting a personalised journey for every student based on individual interests, talents, and passions. 

Dwight London is privileged to be part of the internationally renowned Dwight family of schools, and is the leading independent international school in London. With a global network of Dwight Schools spanning three continents and extending into the cloud with Dwight Global Online School ― ranked by Newsweek as the #2 best online senior school in the U.S. ― students have numerous opportunities to connect with peers worldwide. They can participate in cross-campus cultural and curricular collaborations and exchange programmes. The world is literally at their feet ― and we couldn’t be more delighted to offer our students an international passport to learn.

Personalised learning, together with community and global vision, are the three pillars upon which a Dwight School London world-class education rests and we are committed to igniting the spark of genius in every child. From the admissions process through to graduation, we pride ourselves on the philosophy of educating the whole student rather than just focusing on a test based mentality. Students are not simply a cog in a machine at Dwight and we are not a school that works towards examinations as the only metric to measure student progress, but instead we nurture and cultivate a breadth of skills and learning that will ensure our students are set up for success in whatever their future holds. Students learn to make connections between disciplines and develop a contagious enthusiasm for learning. 

Our learners are proud to come from diverse backgrounds; they celebrate and learn from each others’ perspectives, and are proud to take action to make a better world. Our open-minded approach that values diversity and innovation is underpinned by the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate programmes that open pathways to the top universities across the globe. Our students are critical and creative thinkers, empowered by inquiry-led learning and an expectation that they will be independent learners who create meaning from their experiences. 

I invite you to learn more about what we call the ‘Dwight Difference’ and come to visit the school so that you can see for yourself the warm, purposeful and engaging learning environment that we have here. We would love for you to see our warm, welcoming and diverse community so that you can learn about what makes a Dwight education so special.
