“I have two daughters in the school, and cannot praise the teaching staff members highly enough – their commitment to the children and general enthusiasm for their job is clear. I’ve also had very positive experiences with the management side of Dulwich and feel very listened to and supported there as well. My girls race into school each day with huge smiles on their faces, and I cannot think of another school where they would be getting a better experience.” – Alice Clark Platts, mum to India Platts, 6, Year 2 and Connie Platts, 9, Year 4
