Dulwich Senior School and Scholarships

You are invited to be part of this exciting new phase for Dulwich Prep Cranbrook – the launch of our Senior School.

We believe informed choice, flexibility and individuality are key ingredients in delivering performance. Our students go deeper and further with a subject they love. The happier and more engaged they are, the more they will achieve. For this reason, we will offer genuine choice through a broad GCSE curriculum, so that every student has the opportunity to marry passion and ability, to discover their element.

Dulwich benefits from fantastic facilities for Art, Design & Technology, Drama, Computer Science, Music and Sport, offering students the opportunity to develop their skills and talents to a high level. Academically, students are encouraged to excel in a nurturing culture of aspiration and achievement.

Scholarship Programme

The window for Scholarship applications will open between 7th – 25th November 2022, for entry into Years 7 and 9 in September 2023. Awards given are subject to progression into Year 9.

Awards will be made when students demonstrate outstanding ability and/or potential either academically, or in Art, Computer Science, Design & Technology, Drama, Dance, Music or Sport. These awards are open to both external candidates and current Dulwich Prep students. The awards are competitive and the assessment days will take place in the first half of the Spring term 2023.

Scholars will receive a 10% remission on tuition fees regardless of parental financial means. Should further assistance with fees be required, external applicants can apply for a means tested bursary which may, if parental circumstances justify, result in up to a full remission of fees being offered. Award holders in Art, Computer Science, Design & Technology, Drama, Dance, Music and/or Sport will also need to meet the school’s usual academic entry requirements.

Governors’ Award Scheme

As part of our exciting expansion up to GCSE, and our commitment to enabling as many children as possible to benefit from a Dulwich education, we’re delighted to introduce the
Governors’ Award – bursary support for up to 100% fee remission.

From September 2023, Governors’ Awards are available to children currently in Years 6, 7 or 8 who show outstanding academic potential, with consideration also given to strength in music, sport and the creative arts. The awards will be means-tested, and funds will be allocated according to financial need.

A student in receipt of a Governors’ Award can expect an extremely high quality, academically ambitious education, with a wealth of creative, sporting and leadership opportunities, supported by a warm and dynamic community. The Governors’ Awards will be given to successful scholarship candidates whose parents would otherwise be unable to afford the fees and will be calculated on an individual basis following a full financial means assessment.

For any queries, please contact Georgie and Clare in Admissions, who would be delighted to help: admissions@dulwichprepcranbrook.org or 01580 712179.
