The Charter Schools Educational Trust

Transforming lives through the power of inclusive education

Dulwich Hamlet Junior School

Dulwich Hamlet Junior School has been at the heart of the local community in the London Borough of Southwark since its foundation in 1897. More than a century later and having educated many thousands of children from the surrounding area, our school has become integral to local life and is a cornerstone of the community.

We promote a positive, energetic and caring atmosphere in which children feel safe and secure and want to come to school. We are dedicated to equality and opportunity where all children and adults are respected.

Knowledge, skills, attitudes and values are developed to prepare the children for their next stage of learning and enable them to be successful in their community. We expect everyone to develop and show a sense of responsibility and self-discipline whether alone, together, at work or at play, and promote positive behaviour management strategies.

Our reputation for educational excellence and as champions of outstanding learning through innovative, creative education is widely known. We are particularly proud of our musical tradition, with every child taught to compose, perform, listen to, appraise, and appreciate music. We have developed and nurtured many young musical talents and provide many opportunities for pupils to perform and demonstrate their musicality.

Our highly enriched curriculum is based on strong artistic approaches to curriculum design, robust subject knowledge and an exceptional commitment to ensuring that each and every child's needs are met.
