Middle School: Years 5 and 6

The Middle School is an exciting time for the boys at Dulwich Prep; whether they are entering Year 5 and moving onto the main school site for the first time, or continuing their journey into Year 6 with confidence and anticipation.

Specialist teaching is extended in Middle School and a wider range of academic subjects are taught in sets, in order to recognise the strengths of every individual.

We build on the structures, attitudes and aptitudes of Year 4, supporting the boys as they develop their independence. We encourage them to assume greater responsibility for themselves, their possessions and their work but ultimately our aim is to have happy, confident, well-rounded boys.

The co-curricular life at Dulwich Prep is second to none and the opportunities available to the boys in Middle School are exceptional. Whether canoeist or rock climber, chess enthusiast or speed-stacker, there are clubs to suit every taste. Musical groups and sports teams are extended, with more concerts and inter-school fixtures arranged, and residential trips take place in both Years 5 and 6 providing an opportunity to take learning out of the classroom.

In the Middle School we hope to see your son challenged in the pursuit of excellence whilst embracing the full range of facilities and opportunities that Dulwich Prep has to offer.
