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 during the last few months. We are delighted all children had the opportunity to have at least 3 weeks back in school during the Summer Term. And it is a delight to see them back this Autumn Term. We are well-placed to deliver exceptional remote, or blended online learning, if required, and committed to delivering a peerless Oakfield experience for all our pupils no matter the circumstances. We have recently taken receipt of 150 brand new laptops, headsets and carry case which equates to one for every child in Key Stage 2.

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. To understand more about learning at Oakfield during the Spring and Summer Term 2020 and see testimonials from parents on how the school adapted to the unprecedented challenges posed by Covid-19 please click here.

To honour the dedication and heroism of frontline workers during the lockdown we put together our own little Oakfield tribute. Thank you to our entire Oakfield community of staff, pupils and families involved in making 'Heroes in Blue'. And special thanks to our incredibly talented Director of Music, Mr Howes, for his inspiring music and lyrics. 

We hope you enjoy and share the video so it reaches all the 'Heroes in Blue' out there.
