A World of Opportunity

An independent day school for boys and girls aged 2-11

Oakfield Preparatory School

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.

We are so proud we managed to get all year groups back to school every day for at least the last 3 weeks of the Summer Term. We plan to be back with all year groups full-time as normal for the start of the Autumn Term in September whilst adhering to all government and PHE guidance. However, we are fully prepared for different scenarios which could include blended learning where the children receive some teaching in-school and some online via Microsoft Teams and our Pupil Portal. Similarly, if learning has to be done completely online then we, and our dedicated staff, are equipped to deliver a full teaching programme with live and recorded lessons via Microsoft Teams and the Portal. Oakfield Prep have the available resources and expertise to support all our children and families no matter the circumstances.

And, on that note, we are hugely proud of our Oakfield tribute to the heroism of frontline workers. Thank you to our entire Oakfield community of staff, pupils and families involved with '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.
