An independent day school for boys and girls aged 2-11
Oakfield Preparatory School is an independent co-educational preparatory school for boys and girls aged 2 to 11 years old. We have been part of the fabric of Dulwich for over 130 years and blend traditional values with the best of a modern curriculum. We are passionate about the future of our children, combining an academic programme of the highest standard with a choice of rich and diverse co-curricular activities that encourage our boys and girls to be the best that they can be.
Oakfield and our wonderful families should be hugely proud of their hard work and resilience throughout this last year. We have continually improved and refined our remote, or blended online learning, to deliver a peerless Oakfield experience for all our pupils no matter the circumstances. We deploy Microsoft Teams and a bespoke Pupils Portal which each child in Key Stage 2 (KS2) has a unique login to. Here they can access live lessons, messages and tasks set by their teachers, and receive and review their marked work. We have allocated 150 brand new laptops, headsets and carry case to all children in KS2 and above for use in their online learning.
We are also very lucky to be supported by EdDev’s London CLC, who train and support select schools in using digital technologies creatively and critically.

We have also put together a short showcase of just some of the highlights from 2020 at Oakfield below which we hope you enjoy.
We are also delighted to present our festive extravaganza 'Oakfield at Christmas 2020' featuring the talents of Years 1 - 6. We hope you enjoy the songs and readings at this special time of year, and are looking forward to more great things to come in 2021 from Oakfield Prep.

We want to express our gratitude for all the effort you and your team have done to reopen the school, to reassure everyone of the safe measures in place and to make sure the children are still feeling cared for and loved.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and enthusiasm in what is a very challenging time for everyone.
There’s a saying that “the best of people is seen in the face of adversity”. This pandemic has clearly brought out the best of our Oakfield staff
