What The Good Schools Guide says..
The school presents as a picture postcard Victorian school, with patterned brickwork and scalloped roof tiles, at the heart of picturesque Dulwich village, encircled by sunflowers in the summer, thrilling many a parent and passer-by with nostalgia.

What The Good Schools Guide says
Head of school
Since 2016, Mrs Claire Purcell BEd (40s). Having gained her degree at what is now Southampton University and her first teaching post in a Hampshire school, Mrs Purcell headed to the Hamlet, rising from class teacher and senior manager with a music specialism, via deputy to the new post of head of school over the course of 20 years. Extremely modest, she is, however responsible, for the incredibly rich musical life of the school. One parent told us of her son punching the air when she was made head. We would have liked to spend more time with her but our visit coincided with year 6 Sats. She is devoted to music and family and we hear plays the recorder and sings wonderfully too. She has two young children.
Special Education Needs
We are a fully inclusive school - that means all our children are catered for according to their needs. We take great care to set individual targets that reflect our understanding of how each child will progress. During the Personalised Learning Space, support staff work with individuals or groups on programmes of activity that will help the children develop, these include: social skills groups, comprehension skills, phonic catch ups, maths interventions and other identified needs.
