Dulwich Prep London (DPL), formerly known as Dulwich College Preparatory School, is an independent preparatory school in Dulwich, south London, England for boys aged 3–13 years. It was founded in 1885, and is the largest boys preparatory school in the United Kingdom.[citation needed]

Dulwich Prep London is a feeder school for Dulwich College, Alleyn's School and public schools such as Tonbridge, Sherborne, St. Paul's, Westminster, Dover and Eton. Most boys at Dulwich Prep London, in Year 8, sit scholarship examinations and the ISEB Common Entrance Exam.[citation needed]

In 1938 headmaster John Leakey established an evacuation camp in the orchard on his father-in-law's land at Coursehorn, near Cranbrook, Kent, where the affiliated Dulwich Preparatory School still is today.[1]
