About Us

Dulwich Prep Cranbrook is an independent day and flexible boarding school for girls and boys aged rising 3 to 13 years. We are nestled in the beautiful Kent countryside approximately an hour out of London. 

Dulwich is a forward-thinking, passionate teaching community, enabling our children to make the most of our stunning 50 acres of grounds, thoughtfully designed modern classrooms and superb facilities. Together with our parents, we have created a vibrant and compassionate community where our children happily thrive, reveal their inner talents and excel academically.

We are always excited by the future and continually evolve to support the changing needs of both of students and parents. From September 2023, we are expanding the school to include Years 9, 10 and 11, offering an academically ambitious, forward-looking, co-educational day school through to GCSE. Students will benefit enormously from a dedicated teaching team, offering real choice of study through to GCSE, alongside proven pastoral support and an important focus on student wellbeing.

Established in 1939 when Dulwich College Prep evacuated from London, our school in Cranbrook has gone from strength to strength, continuing a proud tradition of innovation and excellence. We were one of the first fully co-educational prep schools in England, and the first local prep school to introduce personal iPads in Years 7 & 8.
