Dolphin School is an independent coeducational school for children aged 2-11. It is situated in close proximity to Wandsworth Common. The School’s motto is ‘Love, Wisdom and Truth.’ Both Dolphin School and Noah’s Ark Nurseries are underpinned by a Christian ethos, in keeping with the founder, Sarah Chandor’s original vision.

Within Dolphin School are Noah’s Ark Nurseries. There are two settings: Noah’s Ark Nursery within Dolphin School itself, and Noah’s Ark West Side, which is based in a church immediately opposite Wandsworth Common. Noah’s Ark provides the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ (EYFS); the statutory curriculum. Their learning is enhanced with play, and the nursery takes care to incorporate enrichment activities. They use their enclosed, safe outdoor space every day, as well as the children being taken to Wandsworth Common for outings and exercise. A specialist teacher for Music, Dance and Sport is used each week, and in Year Two, a specialist Spanish Teacher too. Leavers from Noah’s Ark largely progress to schools such as Thomas’s – Fulham, Battersea and Clapham, Broomwood Hall and Eaton House. Many follow the through progression to Dolphin School.

‘Dolphin School was founded in 1986 by parents committed to facilitating an education inspired at source by Christian values.’ There are four Houses throughout the School: Aylward, Lewis, Liddell and Wesley. 

Leavers progress onto such prestigious schools as Dulwich College, Caterham, James Allen’s Girls’ School (JAGS) and Emanuel.
