Dulwich College is an academically selective independent boys’ school based in south-east London. It has a distinguished tradition of inspired teaching and genuine scholarship and benefits from historic buildings and glorious green open spaces. Whilst a large school (with approximately 10% of its pupils boarding), it nurtures a supportive community, with a strong sense of social responsibility and personal development.


We like the fact that the Master’s welcome makes mention of not only sport and culture, but also ‘adventurous activities’; all part of the school’s quest to teach boys to lead, work together and be resilient in the face of adversity.
