The Friends of Dulwich Prep London is a society for all parents and staff of the school. It organises various events throughout the year with the aim of encouraging co-operation and good relations between the parents, the staff and all others associated with the school; and to strengthen links between the school and the local community.
Any profits made from the various events which the Friends organises throughout the year is donated to the school for the purchase of equipment or to fund projects, or donated to various charities chosen by the Friends, the boys or the school.

Membership of the Friends is open to all parents, staff, governors, guardians and relatives of present and former pupils and friends of the school. Simply come along to one of the meetings or keep an eye out for notices in the weekly Comet or school mailings, or look out for our posters to see how you can get involved.
In general, the Friends meet once a term to discuss upcoming events. These meetings are usually held in the evening over a glass of wine. An Annual General Meeting is held in the first half of the autumn term. Sub-committees are formed for each of the Friends’ events and additional meetings are arranged at the convenience of the sub-committee members.
Friends’ events throughout the year typically include:

The Friends are always in need of volunteers to help organise or assist at events. The main requirements for volunteering are enthusiasm and a little time. Any particular skills or talents are always appreciated but by no means necessary. Click here for more detail.
We are always pleased to see new faces at meetings. It is an excellent way of meeting other parents, sharing ideas and becoming a little more involved in the school's social activities. If you would like to be involved or want to contact us for any other reason, please complete the form and send us a message.
