Welcome to DUCKS, where life is an exciting journey through our Kindergarten and Infants' School. DUCKS is situated in beautiful, semi-rural surroundings off the main Dulwich College campus. Our Kindergarten offers a caring and stimulating environment for girls and boys from 6 months to 3 years. Our Infants' School has places for 160 girls and boys aged between 3 and 7 years.
Heather Friell is the overall Head of DUCKS, including Head Teacher of the Infants School and Sally Donaldson is Head of Kindergarten.
DUCKS sits within secure grounds a short walk from the main College campus. Occupying a charming house and a new, specially designed building, every classroom opens up to beautiful gardens and a spacious play-area. Children at DUCKS also have access to the College playing fields, the swimming pool and other PE facilities.
Our philosophy is that children learn best by ‘doing’. DUCKS is therefore an active, lively and cheerful classroom environment in which the children learn through play and discover new knowledge through guided activity. We also encourage music and drama with plenty of singing and performances, put on by the children, at the Edward Alleyn Theatre.
