The Head's Welcome
At Dulwich College Junior School we try to create a stimulating environment in which boys can enjoy learning. Every boy is treated as an individual and is encouraged to develop his own special talents and abilities to the full. As we aim to make our boys feel good about themselves, as learners, as people and as a community, we work hard to nurture a positive, happy and purposeful atmosphere.
The Junior School is very much an integral part of Dulwich College, sharing the same aims and values but having the distinctive and special qualities of a Junior School. Our boys are bright, interesting and full of boundless enthusiasm for the opportunities around them. We provide them with an academically challenging curriculum, which allows all their individual interests and talents to blossom. As well as the obvious sporting excellence the College provides, we offer wonderful music tuition through ensembles and lessons, drama productions and classes, as well as intellectual stimulation with activities like philosophy, chess, debating and educational trips. By the time the boys leave us they will have experienced all the facets of their abilities finding their own strengths and understanding their weaknesses. When they transfer to the Senior School, they will be encouraged to pursue their passions and talents to fulfil their exciting potential.
As teachers, our work begins by nurturing the many qualities and skills that you have fostered at home. We believe in working with you to encourage your child to achieve high academic standards, to be confident, courteous, responsible and independent. We will help to instil a sense of right and wrong, respect and tolerance for others and self discipline.
I am delighted to be able to share with you the November 2014 reports from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). Dulwich College Junior School was awarded ‘Excellent’ for every category assessed – please do read the reports for yourself here.
If you think this might be the right environment for your son to spend these important years, we warmly invite you to visit us. There are regular parent tours on Friday mornings throughout the year and a variety of Open Mornings and Open Afternoons in the Michaelmas Term, or you can ring the Junior School Registrar to make an appointment to meet me.
