History

The school was founded in 1984 through the merger of Heversham Grammar School and Milnthorpe Secondary School. Heversham School was founded in 1613 by Edward Wilson, Knight, of Heversham Hall, and occupied the site known in recent years as Old School, above and behind the village church, on Heversham Head. The building is now a private house. The present ivy-clad Boarding House and Big School (formerly the school hall) date from the 1890s.

A crater on the moon - the Whewell (crater) - is named after a Heversham old boy, the distinguished polymath William Whewell (1794–1866). Whewell's influence extends to our everyday language: he invented the words physicist and scientist.

After occupying many different buildings around the village, Milnthorpe Secondary School moved to its current location, complete with Community Centre, in 1968.

The current headmaster of Dallam School is Steve Holdup.

Dallam is a boarding school, the boarding house being on a separate site from that of the main school.

In 2010, the school brought the P.E department down from the Heversham site with an all weather astroturf pitch.

Sixth form

Dallam School has quite a large sixth form, which offers both A-levels and the IB (International Baccalaureate).
