About Us

Since 1885 Dulwich Prep London has been at the forefront of preparatory schooling in England. Generations of boys, and Nursery-aged girls, have benefited from a school which has embraced change, keeping pace with pedagogy and technology, whilst keeping the school’s values at the forefront of everything we do.

We are a selective school in two important ways. Firstly, our pupils generally sit in the top 10% nationally based on their scores in standardised tests. Secondly, and arguably more importantly, we look for children that will thrive at the Prep and make the best of everything we have to offer.

Situated in Dulwich, a leafy village within easy striking distance of the bright lights of one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world, everyone at the School takes pride in inspiring excellence. The rich diversity of curricular and co-curricular opportunities available to our 850 pupils is underpinned by our school values.

Through strong links to our community, alumni and local schools, we model our values in everything we do; nurturing independent thinkers with a sense for justice, who go on to be thoughtful citizens of the world, equipped with a strong moral compass and the ability to adapt to our rapidly changing environment.

Our Governors strive to maintain Dulwich Prep London’s position in a competitive market by sharing their broad range of expertise to provide the highest quality education for our pupils. It is through this investment that we are able to attract excellent staff, provide up-to-date technology and continue to create modern facilities within our stunning South London home.
