Fees and Bursaries



In the light of the current situation, our Board of Governors has taken the decision not to increase fees for the academic year 2020/21.

Fees cover normal curriculum tuition, lunches, most clubs and activities and, in Years 4 to 8, fees also cover the cost of one term-time residential trip each year.

Early Years: Nursery and Reception  £4,535 (part-time; £2,725)
Pre-Prep: Years 1 & 2 £5,275
Lower School: Years 3 & 4  £5,980
Middle & Upper School: Years 5 - 8 £6,696

Registration Fee (non-returnable)          £125

On acceptance of a definite place at the school, a non-returnable deposit of £1850 is required which will be set against the pupil’s final term’s invoice.

Music Tuition

Individual instruction is charged by the individual teachers at a rate of £21.50 per lesson.  There are usually 30 lessons per year.

A charge will be made for the hire of a school instrument by arrangement with the Music Department.


We offer a limited number of means-tested bursaries to new applicants entering Year 3 or above who would otherwise not be able to afford to come to Dulwich Prep London.  These pupils are academically gifted boys who have the aptitude to benefit from the varied opportunities which the School offers.

Applications for bursary places should be made by the registration deadline in mid November in the year prior to entry.  Applicants will be invited to attend for assessment at which they will be required to complete a number of tests as well as an interview. To make an application please click here and complete the dedicated Bursary Registration Form. (There is no need to complete the standard Online Registration Form below.)

In addition to the above form, parents must complete a confidential statement of financial circumstances which requests full details of income and capital resources. Prior to the offer of an award, a home visit will be made to discuss these details. 

Bursaries are reviewed annually and may be adjusted or introduced if parents’ circumstances change during a pupil’s time at the school.
