Our son has received an offer for a reception place from Newton Prep and Dulwich Prep. Unfortunately though, we haven't been able to visit and see the schools in person due to COVID policies. The online videos don't really reveal much about the schools.
We'd be very grateful for any feedback or input from other parents who attend or had considered either of these schools - in terms of their pros and cons, and any comparisons. To our minds, a few immediate thoughts are:
Newton: Not very happy about the commute, like that is it co-ed, the website and videos make it look a fun, engaging, yet down to earth school
Dulwich Prep: Will need to move to Dulwich, don't like that it is boys only, the facilities look amazing, concerned if it is nurturing and inclusive enough
I'm concerned about making a decision only based on videos and also potentially mental biases, so would love to hear from anyone who could tell us more based on experience!
Thank you so much!
