Rosemead Preparatory School and Nursery is delighted to reveal it has won an award at the prestigious Education Choices Awards 2024.

The school, located in the heart of Dulwich, has been awarded for best Improvements in EDIB (Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging) at the awards which were announced on Friday 14 June in London.

Speaking about the news, Head Graeme McCafferty explained: ‘The whole school is thrilled to receive this award. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to providing the best possible education for every child at Rosemead, and I couldn't be prouder of our school's achievement.

‘My heartfelt thanks go to the staff, pupils and parents who have been on this journey with us in the last year.’

A spokesperson for the Education Choices Awards added: ‘We have been really impressed with the work that schools have been getting up to this year in order to envelop Equality, Diversity and Inclusion into their curriculums and work, and it has been really tough to decide each winner.’

The award comes at an exciting time for the Rosemead community. In November, the school was praised in its inspection report following a visit from the Independent Schools Inspectorate.

The inspection celebrated Rosemead’s academic approach to learning, pastoral care and support and the positive influence of the school’s values, vision, and leadership.

‘A highly customised approach to every pupil’s academic progress is a significant strength of the school,’ the report explained. ‘A customised learning programme in mathematics, English and reasoning caters for pupils in Year 4 and above. This, supported by an extensive enrichment programme and much support for individuals, impacts on all groups of pupils, enabling them to make good and often rapid progress over time.’

Last year, the school announced a merger with St Dunstan’s College joining St Dunstan’s Community of Schools.

St Dunstan’s Group Head, Nick Hewlett, said: ‘The whole community is delighted with this award for Rosemead. The award rightly recognises the outstanding education Rosemead is offering as one of south London’s leading prep schools. Bringing our schools together has been a wonderful opportunity, allowing our staff and students to work closer together, learning from one another and enhancing our students’ educational journeys.’
