Policies & Inspections


At Dulwich Prep London, our policies are principles of action that underpin our core values. Our policies are in place to protect our school’s aims and help us navigate through practical implications that may arise across all sections of the school, including Clubs and Out of School Care.

Please be aware that we review our policies to account for updates to statutory requirements and changes to our operations and the wider community.

Hard copies of these policies and copies of other school policies are available by contacting the Bursar.

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.
