Dulwich Preparatory School, Cranbrook

An independent day and flexible boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 to 13


Parents who are considering a place at Dulwich Preparatory School for their children, are invited to make an appointment to visit us. Please ring me on 01580 712179 or email registrar@dcpskent.org to make an appointment. We would be delighted to give you a tour of the School and you can formally apply for a place by returning the completed Registration Form and fee. The school has four main entry-points: Nursery (32 places), Reception (8 places), Year 3 (20 places) and Year 5 (12 places). There is also the possibility of children joining Year 7, though this is dependent on current Year 6 pupils leaving the school.  In Nursery, we accept children in the term after their third birthday. Places are allocated strictly in order of date of registration with the only priority being given to siblings.

In Nursery and Reception there is no entry assessment. However, from Year 3 and above, in the year before the child is due to enter the school, parents will be invited to bring their child to school to take an informal assessment and meet the teachers. We would then formally offer a place and the return of the Acceptance Form and deposit of £500 completes the entry procedure. The deposit is refunded on the child’s final invoice.

Please take a moment to look around our website.  The News pages give information about recent events and you can also read the Headmaster's letter and the School's Facebook and Twitter pages.
