Dulwich Preparatory School, Cranbrook is a day and flexible boarding school with 540 children aged 3 to 13, divided into three departments, on a wonderful rural campus of 50 acres in the Kent countryside. The school is large enough to have excellent facilities, an expert teaching staff, a broad and stimulating curriculum and great attention is paid to pastoral care and to the happiness of the children.
This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the school, commemorating the humble beginnings when Dulwich College Prep School in London evacuated to the orchards of Kent at the outbreak of World War Two. The school is still connected to Dulwich Prep, London, as both are run by the same charitable trust.
For those considering a move out of London, Dulwich Prep, Cranbrook offers a combination of a rural setting with state of the art, purpose built facilities. Boarding is a popular option.
Above all the school aims to produce happy, confident children who have belief in themselves. As the Good Schools Guide says '...(the) School has high expectations of everyone, but gives them a huge breadth of opportunity to succeed.'
Only an hour by train from London, Dulwich Prep offers a truly unique opportunity for children to discover 'a space to breathe and the time to grow'.
