Upper School: Years 7 and 8

Years 7 and 8 are known as the Upper School and are the final two years for the boys at Dulwich Prep London. Fantastic opportunities await as they enter the top end of the school and become our senior boys. As such they become the role models for the younger boys and there is also an expectation that they will begin to give something back. Programmes exist through which they are able to mentor younger pupils, assist with, and perhaps lead, clubs and activities in other sections of the school. Senior boys also perform duties that help with the day-to-day running of their school.

In many subjects the boys begin to prepare academically for their final exams which take place in the spring and summer terms of Year 8. A tailored programme of pastoral and academic support helps the boys to progress through this challenging and exciting period.

There remains a vast array of exciting co-curricular clubs to choose from, as well as numerous senior sports teams, music groups and opportunities in drama which we actively encourage the boys to pursue alongside their studies. In each year of the Upper School boys tackle a demanding residential trip and the boys also enjoy a series of visits, lectures and projects. Boys finish their time at Dulwich Prep London fully equipped for a seamless and happy transition to the next stage of their journey in life at senior school.
