JOHN DEWEY ISG
Learning by Doing
We are an Independent Specialist Provider, in the heart of Haringey. Like John Dewey, we believe education is not preparation for life, education is life!
The transformative learning experiences at the John Dewey ISG are designed to help our young people gain greater independence in their adult lives. Established in 2008, the John Dewey ISG is located in Wood Green and reflects the vibrant energy of this growth area. Our passionate and skilled team members are here to help our young people make an impact on the world. Are you ready to reach your potential? Join us!
SUPPORT OUR SERVICES
Give our young people the tools they need to succeed
Your donations to The John Dewey Independent Specialist Group are put towards our new building fund, providing specialist equipment and inspiring our students to strive for more. As part of our community, you are involved in preparing our young people intellectually, emotionally, and socially to thrive in life.
