We also offer a familiarisation visit to the 3+ and 4+ applicants which serves as a great opportunity for the younger children to see the Early Years before they come for their assessment.
On assessment day itself, children are seen in small groups (fewer than 10) to see how they play together and follow simple instructions. The assessment finishes with a group story or music and the children then return to their parents.
Dulwich Prep London is a fast paced academic school. We look for a well-balanced boy who is excited to learn and willing to make a positive contribution to the school, closely following our core values; Love, Humility, Self-discipline, Gratitude, Justice, Honesty, Service and Courage.
We have a closing date for all registrations in November of the year before entry. We do sometimes accept late entries if there is a place in that year group. A recent school report and a reference are always required.
It is very difficult to know at age 3 what type of school will be best for your child at 13. We allow your son to grow into himself in an environment that is tailored specifically to the younger ages.
The school’s main priority is the well-being and happiness of its pupils.
While the school has a Christian ethos, we welcome people of all faiths and none. Our 8 school values serve to support our belief in mutual respect and tolerance.
Research shows that boys learn more effectively in a single gender environment
Although we don’t run our own buses, we have an arrangement that allows our boys to use the Foundation coaches that serve DC, Alleyn’s and JAGS. https://www.dulwich.org.uk/foundation-schools-coach-service/home
When boys are old enough, we encourage them to cycle or walk to school.
