The Curriculum

An innovative and challenging curriculum that seeks to foster a growth mindset in all pupils. At Dulwich Prep London we believe that there is no limit to a child’s potential.

Games & the Arts

Sport, music, drama, art, and DT all play a fundamental part in daily life at Dulwich Prep London. We champion the ability to play sport or be creative with intelligence and passion, and we recognise the benefits of both.

Pastoral Care

At Dulwich Prep London pastoral care is the starting and endpoint of all we do, we recognise its importance, underpinning every element of a child’s education. Our years of experience working with boys up to 13 years old, ensure that we understand the unique physical, emotional and developmental challenges they face. We treat every child as an individual, nurturing the necessary skills and support to equip them for their future.

Recent Scholarships

Between 2020 and 2022, over 200 scholarships have been awarded to top senior schools.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Miss Davidson is passionate about boys learning holistically, building good character and developing meaningful skills for their future. She effectively strikes a balance between the school’s heritage and traditions with the need to be at the forefront of what is new and best in education.

Outstanding Characteristics

For the boys at Dulwich Prep London, their time is about more than preparation for exams; it is about preparation for life. We believe an education rooted in teaching character is what sets our boys apart. We uphold eight values (Love, Courage, Gratitude, Humility, Justice, Service, Self-discipline and Honest) which underpin a holistic education; these values allow our boys to flourish.
