DUCKS (Kindergarten and Infants' School)

DUCKS is an independent Co-Educational Kindergarten and Infants' School and is one of the five schools of Dulwich College. Attendance at DUCKS is term-time only and the main point of entry is at the beginning of the academic year in September. From September 2025 all new admissions to DUCKS will be fulltime places.

Kindergarten: Age 18 months to 2 years entry

In the Kindergarten, our main points of entry are the Toddler Room and the Duckling Room. Places are offered by date of registration.

Infants: Age 3 to 6 entry

In the Infants' School we have a number of occasional places at Pre-Reception (3+), Reception (4+), Year 1 (5+) and Year 2 (6+). At 3+ places are offered by date of registration and at 4+, 5+ and 6+ entry is via assessment. At 4+ applicants have the opportunity to gain a deferred Year 3 place at the Junior School. 

Year 1 (5+) and Year 2 (6+)

A small number of chance vacancies may become available each year at Year 1 and Year 2 and admission is via assessment. Please either contact the Registrar or wait for registration to open online during the Lent term of the year of entry. i.e. Year 1 and Year 2 2025 registration will open during January in 2025.

Children are invited to attend an assessment session during the Lent term prior to the year of joining. The Assessments will last approximately 45 minutes and will be led by our Deputy Head and Head of KS1. The children will join the teachers in the classroom and will be invited to take part in activities similar to those already familiar to them from their current Reception class setting.
