Giving children an environmental voice

Posted: 27th April 2021

We have long been an eco-conscious school that strives to pursue a meaningful path towards improving the environment.

Last year, we wanted to show our commitment to sustainable education further by entering the Eco-Schools programme.

The programme consists of a seven-step framework focusing on 10 Eco-Schools topics and an assessment for the bronze, silver and internationally recognised Green Flag award. Most importantly, the programme is child-led, with all ideas and initiatives coming from our pupils.

We are extremely proud to announce that we have now gained the Bonze Award, with the Silver Award in our sights!

To achieve the award, our eco-school committees have formed an environmental review, devised an action plan, created a school eco code and implemented many positive changes to our school community. Despite a turbulent year, when in school, our eco boys regularly participate in litter picks, planting, energy-saving initiatives and discussions on how we can improve our school environment. Their new pen recycling bins located in each section have got the term off to a great start!

Our ultimate aim is to achieve the internationally recognised Eco-Schools Green Flag award, once we have completed the Silver Award.





What’s coming up?

We are looking forward to our whole school event, Eco-Week that will be taking place the week before half term.

With whole-school growing competitions and the debut of our very own recycled Dulwich Prep face mask, there is plenty for the DPL community to look forward to!

Dulwich Prep & Senior Announcement

We are delighted to share that we will be extending our provision from ages 3-13 to ages 2-16. Our first Year 9 cohort will start in September 2025.

As a highly commended school at this year’s Independent School of the Year Awards, we are excited to share that we will become Dulwich Prep & Senior.

We will continue to be a school of choice, maintaining our exceptional Prep offering with the option of staying to GCSE. Our support of families in finding the right senior school or sixth form at the right time for their sons will remain at our core, whether that be at ages 11, 13 or 16.

Our key entry points will be Nursery, Reception, Year 3, Year 7 and Year 9. Occasional places may be available in other year groups.

If you would like your son to be one of our ‘Trailblazers’ and join Year 9 in 2025 or 2026, please get in touch with our Admissions Department for further details.
