School Life


The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.” (Plutarch)

Life outside the classroom is such an important part of children’s lives at Dorset House and their experience in these areas helps them greatly as they progress through the school and on to senior school and beyond. 

With increasing numbers of young people achieving high grades in their academic studies, it can often be what they have to offer, and what they have experienced in addition to their examination results, which can impress university admissions teams and indeed employers.   

We seek to ignite interests and passions which will enrich our pupil’s lives well beyond their time at Dorset House.
