At Dallington, we take care of students aged 16-24 whilst they are studying in the UK. We ensure that students’ needs are being met and that you, as parents, have peace of mind. Think of us as your home away from home, your extended family whom you can call upon at any time.


The years from 16 – 24 are full of changes and new opportunities that are formative and exciting…

but often challenging too. During these years the cognitive, social-emotional and physical aspects of self are still being developed. In other words, we are still trying to understand who we are and how we fit into the world around us.

The move away from home can be a challenging time…

particularly when studying abroad in a new country, environment, and culture. Navigating a new academic system and making new friends are time-consuming activities in their own right. Add to this the demands of academia, cultural barriers, new-found freedoms, and the pressures of a constantly connected and information-rich environment, and it can all seem overwhelming.

Structure, support, and psychological resources are extremely important…

in maintaining physical and mental fitness, as well as emotional stability. Having someone on-hand whom you know will put you first, can be the difference between a distressing experience and a happy, productive one – for both students and parents. We offer a rare combination of practical day-to-day, as well as psychological support and resources. The term psychology can sound a little daunting, but as an experienced team, it underpins everything that we do.

We don’t just support, we upskill…

helping you to become the people that you want to be. We offer tailored learning programs across a number of disciplines and industries, to supplement your education and arm you with knowledge that will help you in your lives beyond school and university. With our support, our students stand a much stronger chance of successfully embracing adulthood, at the right pace for them.

We help you get the most out of your experience away from home… 

in the way that is just right for you. Everyone is different, which is why the support and bespoke programs that we offer you are built to suit your specific requirements. With the right combination of planning, practical and emotional support, attending school and university in the UK can be transformed from a daunting experience into a positive one.
