The Junior School accommodates 200 boys from Years 3 to 6 in bright, purpose-built accommodation on the Dulwich College campus. In line with the rest of the College, the Junior School is academically selective. We ensure that the boys are challenged in the classroom and have plenty of opportunities to learn and play beyond the classroom too.
Boys usually enter the Junior School at the age of 7+ (Year 3) but there is a small entry for boys at 8+ (Year 4), 9+ (Year 5) and 10+ (Year 6). They come from a wide range of Pre-preps and local primary schools and we celebrate this diverse range of backgrounds. All boys are required to sit an entrance examination (in maths, English and verbal reasoning) and attend an interview. The expectation is that the boys will move to the Lower School at age 11, following the 11+ examination.
We have our own school hall, IT suite, art room and design technology room and science laboratory. Junior School boys are taught music in the College’s music school, while Games and PE are taught by specialist sports staff making full use of the College’s extensive playing fields and impressive Sports Centre. The boys are able to enjoy the special atmosphere of their junior years, taught by dedicated teachers, with the benefits of a larger school on their doorstep.
