Transforming lives through the power of inclusive education

The Charter School North Dulwich

'An outstanding family school'

Our students are encouraged to persevere, to take responsibility for themselves and others, and to enjoy their learning. We are immensely proud of this unique school which consistently transforms the life chances of the young people of our diverse local community.

The school is recognised as one of the top schools in the country for our achievement.  In the latest school comparison tables, published by the Department for Education, TCSND significantly outperformed national averages and is ranked within the top 10% of schools across the country for progress at both GCSE and A Level. The school has been classed as outstanding by Ofsted since 2006.

TCSND is a family school; large enough to provide a dynamic, challenging curriculum yet small enough to pay attention to the needs of every child. The school’s teachers and support staff are creative, skilled, dedicated and enthusiastic professionals, who work tirelessly to improve the outcomes for all students. Like every family, there are rules and routines and we have high expectations for each child. Visitors often comment on what a happy, well behaved school it is. Pupils love it because they feel inspired, busy, helped and challenged – but above all, because they feel, and are made to feel, successful.  The school is also blessed with a highly active and supportive parent body and some wonderful friends in the business, education, technology and medical worlds who work with our young people as mentors, supporters and advisors.

Finally, the goal at The Charter School North Dulwich is a simple one: to enable all students to develop the knowledge, skills and character so that they can be happy in life, and be successful in higher education or the inspiring career pathway of their choice.  Every child has different strengths. We guarantee you that we will harness your children’s unique strengths to help them to flourish and develop into a creative, confident and caring citizens who are happy in themselves, excited about learning and ambitious for success.
