Why choose us

In a world where we are all increasingly aware of the pressures children feel at an increasingly young age, here at Dulwich Wood we work to create a learning environment that encourages creativity and intellectual confidence in all our students. This helps them develop as fully rounded individuals able to realise their potential and celebrate their differences.

Community and collaboration are at the heart of our learning. We see that happy and engaged children make better learners so we seek to instil enthusiasm and excitement in creative and dynamic learning from Reception to Year 6.

Through our learning toolkit we aim to give all our students tools that equip them for emotional, psychological and social development, as well as for academic growth. Have a rummage in the learning toolkit, pop on a pair of empathy goggles, and learn more how we’re equipping our future citizens.
