Dagfa School Nottingham is an independent, co-educational school for pupils aged between 2 and 16. Led by Headmaster Dr Peter Woodroffe, the school aims to encourage the personal development of its pupils by providing a wide range of both curricular and extracurricular stimulation. Through the two houses, Chatsworth and Newstead, pupils are able to develop self-esteem and consideration for one another and because we are a small school, the bond between staff and pupils is excellent. We promote parent involvement in school life and have a very active PTA, so pupils can learn in a supportive and nurturing environment. Our mission is to develop our pupils’ interest in learning, which is reflected in our consistent academic success.  Dagfa is a non-selective school and due to the small class sizes, is able to extend and enhance the education of all of its pupils.  Over the last 4 years, less than 70% of the pupils were predicted to get 5 A*-C grades, but 84% actually achieved this measure.  At the top end, over this time, only 7% of the exams were predicted to be graded at A or A*, but in the final results, 20% of exams were passed at A or A*.  Dagfa adds value to all pupils across the ability range.  Our concern is and always will be to help our pupils to do their best and to leave our care well rounded and intelligent young people. Why not come for a visit? Call the office on 0115 913 8330; we look forward to seeing you!
