Dame Allan's

diamond structure

We are unique in the region as the only school following the pioneering Diamond Structure. In our Junior School boys and girls learn together. At the age of 11, they move into our single sex Boys’ and Girls’ Schools, where they are taught separately leading up to their GCSE examinations. When the students begin their A Level studies, they move into our co-educational Sixth Form.


Welcome to Dame Allan's Schools

shaping the future

Dr. J R Hind

Dame Allan's Schools were founded in 1705 by Dame Eleanor Allan to provide a 'proper education' for boys and girls in Newcastle. Now, over three hundred years later, we draw strength from this heritage. We are extremely proud to provide an excellent education for all our pupils and to prepare them for the challenges of life ahead.

Choosing the best school for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent has to make and a website can only give you a glimpse into the life of a school. I would encourage you to come and see Dame Allan's and to meet and talk to staff and pupils, giving you a clearer understanding of what we offer our students and how you can be a part of the Dame Allan's family.
