Friends of Dulwich

Lots of events, a real community, friendly to newcomers and highly caffeinated (plenty of coffee mornings).

The Good Schools Guide

As a parent of a present or former pupil at the School you automatically belong to The Friends of Dulwich Prep Cranbrook – our parents’ association. The Friends’ primary aim is to encourage a close and welcoming relationship amongst parents and between parents and staff and the School itself.

Our secondary aim is to raise money to provide additional facilities for the School to enhance our children’s time here and for future generations to enjoy. Additionally The Friends’ donate a proportion of the annual fundraising budget to charity. Recent charities have included Make A Wish Foundation, Breast Cancer Kent,  Action Aid and Riding for the Disabled. 

The Friends’ calendar is a busy one with lots of social events for you and your children to enjoy including Children’s Discos, Fireworks Night, Christmas Fair, Summer Fair, Walks and Quiz Evenings – to name but a few.

Please look at the Future Events page to see what is coming up as well as liking our Facebook page where details of events are posted regularly.

The Friends’ open and run the Upper School Swimming Pool during the summer for the parents, pupils and teacher’s use. This is a wonderful way to socialise with friends whilst utilising some of the fantastic outdoor school facilities. 

An elected committee of current parents and staff who meet 6 times throughout the academic year runs the Friends of Dulwich Prep Cranbrook. We always welcome new members and love involving as many people as possible in our events.

The AGM takes place every Autumn Term during which the Committee is elected and officers are chosen. This AGM is open to all parents.

We hope you and your child(ren) enjoy your time at Dulwich and look forward to meeting you soon!
