Year 9 entry (13+)

Each academic year around 90 boys join the Middle School into Year 9 (13+). In addition, 125 boys join the year group from our Lower School, making a total of around 215 boys. 60 of these places are given to boys in UK prep schools who sit entrance examinations when they are in Year 6. The remaining 30 places are given to boys who sit the entrance examinations when they are in Year 8.

All candidates sitting for Year 9 Deferred Entry for September 2027 will sit their Entrance Examinations at Dulwich College on Tuesday 3 December 2024 using our own bespoke tests. We do not use the ISEB pre-test for Deferred Entry applicants.

Please see Entry Procedure and Practice Tests below for further information. Please note that candidates cannot apply for both Year 7 and for Year 9 Deferred Entry. The point of entry should be specified when completing the online Registration form, and it will not be possible to change this route after Friday 27 September 2024, the registration deadline for Deferred Entry 2027.
