Although Dulwich Prep School is situated just outside Cranbrook town, every effort is made to foster links with the local community. Sports matches are played against the local primary schools, the school sports facilities are used by Cranbrook town and other clubs for cricket and football at weekends.
Musical groups from the school visit the elderly and disabled in the area, usually at Christmas time, to sing and play for them. Our annual Carol Service is held in Cranbrook Church, where we have also performed a Proms Concert, together with the Sussex Brass Band. We encourage pupils from local senior schools to come to Dulwich Prep School on work experience.
In the Autumn Term, we organise a Football Festival at Dulwich Prep with local primary and prep schools which is always a great success and we hope will involve even more schools in the future.
