What The Good Schools Guide says..
Once more sporty than academic, the balance has been redressed, now much more of an all-round school.Teaching time has been increased by 40 minutes per day and all children now have two periods of French per week. No gripes about teaching reach our ears, quite the opposite: ‘the boys seem fired up by what they learn.'
What the school says...
Dulwich College Junior School is very much a part of the College but great care is taken to provide an environment appropriate to the age of the boys. They are taught by teachers who understand the needs of this age group. As well as providing academic challenge, boys are actively encouraged to participate in the co-curricular life of the College; there are many lunch time clubs and activities including Lego club, gardening, karate, rugby, newspaper club, chapel choir, orchestra, design technology and drama. In addition, they are members of one of the College Houses and participate enthusiastically in a range of House competitions: teambuilding day, the House conker competition and House chess are all firm favourites. Boys enter the Junior School primarily at the age of 7 but there is also a small entry at age 8, 9 and 10. The Junior School, like the rest of the College, is academically selective. The expectation is that the boys will move to the Lower School at age 11, following the 11+ examination. ...Read more

Previously a six year stint as deputy headmaster at Lanesborough School in Guildford, where he was involved in the management and marketing of the school in a parent-facing role: a good precursor to being head.
