Join us at Dwight School London where we are dedicated to crafting a personalised journey for every student, which we call "igniting the spark of genius in every child". We invite you to visit us to see our school's warm, engaging environment and experience our spark of genius philosophy in action.

A member of the world-renowned Dwight global family of schools, we share the same commitment to personalising education which began nearly 150 years ago when Dwight was founded in 1872 in New York and 1972 in London.

Our students are encouraged to pursue their passions, believe in their own talents and celebrate and learn from the perspectives of others. They are also inspired to take intellectual risks through the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate curriculum - a pathway to top universities worldwide - nurturing creative critical thinkers empowered to help make our world a better place.

We are one of the leading UK IB World schools to offer the full IB Continuum:

  • The Primary Years Programme (PYP) - ages 2 to 11
  • The Middle Years Programme (MYP) - ages 11 to 16
  • The Diploma Programme (DP) - ages 16 to 18

Through Dwight School London’s personalised learning, EAL and mother tongue programmes, we enable all students to access the IB curriculum and become successful global citizens.

Through the academic breadth and depth of the IB, we nurture inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better, more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

Our school rests on three pillars:

  • Personalised learning: Customising an education for every student. We pride ourselves on getting to know each of our students and their families quite well. We shape the learning journey around how students best learn, where their skills lie, and what sparks their interest.
  • Community: Encouraging students to contribute to their school and wider communities. Through service learning, we foster every student's ability to make a positive difference to our school, among neighbours, and in the world beyond.
  • Global vision: Educating global leaders. With students from around the world, Dwight is a culturally and socially rich and diverse school. We nurture learning within our own international community, the IB's larger global context and our network of Dwight Schools across continents.
