Donor Impact Report 2021

Donor Impact Report 2021

You are receiving this 2021 Donor Impact Report because your generosity has helped to create more opportunities for pupils to receive an extraordinary education at Dulwich College. This report provides a window into the world of Dulwich College and the positive impact that you and your fellow supporters have made across our community. Thank you.

Last academic year 2020-21 brought many challenges and changes to Dulwich. The Covid-19 pandemic significantly impacted our pupils, and there were many societal issues, particularly in relation to race and gender, that have come to the fore and which have had a direct impact on our work and led to the enunciation of an explicit Equality and Respect Agenda. Despite the difficulties of the past year, we have been able to accomplish something that I hoped for at the outset – that no pupil would be forced to leave Dulwich owing to the pandemic. It is thanks to your support that we have been able to continue to offer means-tested financial assistance to many talented boys whose families could not afford to pay full fees. During these difficult times, our mission to help families whose sons can only be with us if they receive fee relief is more vital than ever, and I am deeply grateful to you and your fellow generous donors for helping us to maintain our longstanding commitment to bursaries, from the “Dulwich Experiment” of the mid-twentieth century to today when 35% of Senior School pupils receive financial support. Thank you for helping us to achieve this. Throughout academic year 2020-21, I was humbled by the response of the Dulwich community to our need for philanthropic support. OAs, parents and staff have sent letters of support and, of course, contributed financially to our Bursary Appeal. In 2020-21, supporters like you committed gifts and pledges of more than £1.17million, most of which has been given to support means- tested bursaries. Every gift, no matter its size, will change lives. Thank you. Your support brings us closer to our mission to become a school that is open to all, regardless of financial circumstances. Thanks to you, every year we can provide more talented boys with the opportunities that an extraordinary and holistic Dulwich education can provide. It is an honour to present you with this report on the impact that your support has had and will continue to have on our community. I am also proud that throughout the last academic year our pupils have exhibited remarkable resilience, hard work and flexibility, buoyed by dedicated, creative and passionate staff. Our leavers, as you will read, have gone on to excellent universities and professional opportunities, and our entire pupil body has committed to serving others in need. We have also grown closer to our local partners, including the schools of the Southwark Schools Learning Partnership, and our international schools, with whom we engaged in virtual learning and events, such as professional networking, music recitals and photography exhibitions. This year has illustrated that these connections are more important than ever.

Dr Joe Spence The Master



Monday 8 March 2021 marked the day when Dulwich College returned to something approaching normality. Nearly one year on from the first Covid-19 lockdown, pupils returned to campus for every academic subject, co-curricular activities and clubs and societies, too. The entire Dulwich community pulled together to help us safely finish the academic year 2020-21 on campus. Pupils from DUCKS to Year 13 leavers, alongside teachers and operational staff social distanced, wore masks and Covid tested regularly. Thanks to their caution, our Duke of Edinburgh pupils could trek in the Brecon Beacons National Park and the New Forest, Year 11 pupils could stage extracts from Punk Rock by Simon Stephens, and the 1st XI cricket could play on Founder’s Day. Our pupils and OAs featured within this report exemplify Dulwich’s perseverance during the extraordinary academic year 2020-21. We hope that you enjoy reading more about our pupils’ experiences and the positive impact that our supporters have made to their schooldays.

Getting back to the classroom

March 2021 We safely welcomed pupils and staff back to campus, thanks to a combination of lateral flow testing and social distancing.

April 2021 Pupils and OAs raised more than £5,000 for the Kitchen Social Initiative, part of the Mayor’s Fund for London, to combat holiday hunger in Southwark.

May 2021 More than 60 Canon Carver Society members joined Dr Joe Spence and Dr Nick Black, Director of Admissions, Libraries and Archives, for a virtual lecture on Alfred J Carver, Master of Dulwich (1858- 1883). Ordinarily, our legacy society would have enjoyed lunch together on campus. This was the Society’s first virtual event, allowing members from as far afield as the USA and Eswatini to attend.

June 2021 Pupils engaged with nature,

July 2021 Year 13 and Year 11 pupils achieved excellent A-level and GCSE results. Their fantastic results bear clear evidence of their hard work, alongside the efforts of their teachers and families, despite 18 months of lockdown learning.

followed the paths on the College’s wellbeing map and considered the importance of looking after each other and themselves.

Bursaries are funded through a combination of the generosity of benefactors to the College’s Bursary Appeal Fund and our own financial resources, including income distributions from the Dulwich Estate and income generated through our educational partnership with Dulwich College International.

We are proud of our history and our longstanding commitment to providing financial support for talented boys who might not otherwise be able to access a Dulwich education. We currently provide financial support in the form of scholarships and means-tested bursaries to 35% of senior school pupils, ranging from 10% to 100% of fee support, dependent on individual circumstance, and we have a focus on transformational bursaries of 75%+. Our social mission to provide financial support for as many talented boys as possible took on increased urgency during the pandemic, especially for our pupils who come from low- income backgrounds. Each year, around 65% of our intake at 11+ comes from state schools, many of whom receive substantial bursaries to attend the College. The pandemic threatened to exacerbate these pre-existing inequalities, and so the College made three important commitments in line with our longstanding social mission: • No boy should have to leave the College due to the pandemic. • All boys should have access to their online learning and exam revision resources throughout lockdown learning. • We should continue to work closely with local primary schools to promote our bursary programme, encouraging local families to apply to Dulwich. To ensure that no boy had to leave the College due to the pandemic, we provided £173,000 of Covid-19 hardship support to pupils and their families in need, providing much needed support in a time of crisis and alleviating financial stress during the pandemic. This is in addition to the £4.03million that we spent on bursaries. To ensure that all boys have equal access to online learning, we issued more than 40 laptops to bursary holders to enable them to participate in virtual learning. And, to ensure that we continued working with local primary schools to promote our bursary programme, the College went the extra mile to maintain links with local primary schools and offer guidance and reassurance to prospective parents and carers. In addition to providing for our own pupils, a generous Old Alleynian supporter facilitated a significant livery company grant to purchase laptops for our local partner school City Heights. We thank everyone, including you, for your help to provide our pupils of all backgrounds with the tools they needed to succeed last academic year 2020-21. It was a year unlike any other but one with challenges that we were able to overcome thanks to the help of supporters like you.

“We knew from our first campus visit that our son Titus could develop his potential at Dulwich. Dulwich was unique in that it was about educating boys in the widest possible sense of the word, and it had a great balance between strong academics and co-curricular activities. We were delighted when Titus was accepted, but as Titus is one of five children and as I work in the start- up space, we could not afford for Titus to attend Dulwich without financial support. We were so happy when we found out that Dulwich would award Titus a bursary. Dulwich was absolutely the right place for him, and his bursary made his education at the College possible.”

“Bursaries are transformational. It is not an overstatement to say that during the pandemic, bursaries, and other forms of financial support, changed our pupils’ lives. We are so grateful for your help in enabling our talented pupils to reach their full potential, regardless of the pandemic and regardless of their financial circumstances. Your support enabled us to provide nimble, flexible and targeted support to all our pupils in need, to proactively respond to the pandemic’s challenges and meet pupils and our families where they were, all whilst fulfilling our longstanding social mission. Thank you.” Dr Cameron Pyke, Deputy Master External

Looking forward, we aim to build our Bursary Appeal Fund further, the income from which we hope will fund these places in perpetuity.



Every year, talented Alleynians leave Dulwich to make their way in the world. Many of them have received support from a means-tested bursary place at the College, and all of them go on to make great impact on the world. Some leavers begin their university studies immediately, taking on challenging studies at world-leading institutions, while others take gap years to travel, do charitable work or gain invaluable internship experiences, and some even go directly into their chosen profession via apprenticeships and entrepreneurship. Dulwich College prepares our leavers to take their next steps, wherever they might be, with confidence.



“Ever since I can remember, I have been passionate about the intersection of business and technology. During my time at Dulwich College, I have met some incredible people who encouraged me to work hard and aim high. Thanks to their support, I fulfilled one of the biggest dreams of my life – studying in the USA. I am currently enrolled in a dual degree program at the University of Pennsylvania, where I have an opportunity to study computer engineering at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and economics at the Wharton School of Business.” Piotr Lazarek OA (2019-21), University of Pennsylvania “When I was considering Engineering at Cambridge, my teachers at Dulwich provided me with a huge amount of advice and support, from personal statement review to interview practice. In addition, the Dulwich environment, including relevant projects that I undertook in Years 12 and 13, gave me insight into what studying Engineering at such a highly reputed university would be like. I truly look forward to what the future holds for me at Cambridge.” Tasin Sayed OA (2019-21), Engineering at Cambridge University “After Dulwich, I accepted a place at Newcastle University and then did a gap year at Scotch College (Australia) where I coached rugby and helped around the school. I found that I liked working, and so I decided to turn down my university place and search out apprenticeship opportunities instead. Last year, I accepted a place with Miller Insurances, and this year, I’ve accepted a full-time job as a Placing Broker. Dulwich massively prepared me for my transition from school to work, from academics to people skills, and Dulwich gave me the confidence to feel that I can take on any role.” Haydn Oakley OA (2013-18), Miller Insurances Apprenticeship

“I received several offers from universities to study aerospace engineering, but I decided to pursue an apprenticeship with Rolls Royce because I could get paid to work and study at the same time. I accepted an apprenticeship with Rolls Royce, and I’ve enjoyed my experiences here so much, from placements in aerospace to nuclear engineering, that I plan to stay on at Rolls Royce for years to come, even after my apprenticeship finishes. My apprenticeship has given me a head start – I'm doing exactly what I want to do.” James Barnett OA (2010-19), Rolls Royce Apprenticeship



OAs, parents, pupils and staff have played vital roles in their communities throughout the pandemic. Several of them have been on the medical frontlines, from our pupils who printed 2,000 PPE visors for essential workers, to our young OAs who have cared for patients in need, to parents who have coordinated the NHS response to help society emerge from the pandemic. We are grateful to all our Dulwich community members who have supported others during this difficult time, and we are especially grateful to those who have found time to inspire future medics and health professionals amongst our pupils.

Dr Faheem Ahmed OA (2003-10), medical doctor; Director of Selfless, a charity that addresses local and global health care challenges; and researcher on the pandemic’s negative impacts on global social inequality, spoke with pupils from the Southwark Schools Learning Partnership (SSLP) about his experiences during the pandemic, inspiring future healthcare leaders. Dr Nikita Kanani MBE, College Parent and Medical Director of Primary Care for NHS England and NHS Improvement, has been on the forefront of what has quickly become recognised as one of the world’s leading vaccination programmes. She spoke to more than 150 OAs, parents and SSLP pupils as part of our May 2021 Healthcare Lecture Series about the unprecedented speed with which the vaccination programme was established and that we must absolutely look after the NHS workforce who have stood by us throughout the pandemic. Medical students Hammad Jeilani OA (2009-16) and Chris Law OA (2011-16) founded a medical drone delivery service that aims to transport Coronavirus samples, test kits and protective equipment between hospitals. Their remote-controlled drone flies between Essex’s Broomfield Hospital, Basildon Hospital and the Pathology First Laboratory in Basildon. Cornelius Wilson OA (2001-08), Pilot whose work slowed down during the pandemic, used his extra time to volunteer as a London Ambulance Emergency Responder in Waterloo, Croydon and Isleworth.

Following on from Dulwich, Ennan studied Medicine at the University of Bristol, and he was just starting his medical rotations when the pandemic began. Since then, Ennan has worked on the medical frontlines in South Wales, doing rotations in Oncology, Geriatrics, Cardiology and Intensive Care. He hopes to become a Consultant Geriatrician in the future. Ennan can trace his resilience to his time at Dulwich, especially the Scouts: “I joined the Scouts in the Lower School, and I learned so much that I still use in my medical work today – teamwork, leadership and prioritisation, especially. In the future, I want to use these same skills to become a Consultant Geriatrician.” Dr Ennan Mwendwa OA (2000-11)



The College is committed to building strong partnerships with independent and state schools. These partnerships raise aspirations across both sectors, and despite the pandemic, the College committed to continuing all our partnerships, flexibly adapting all our activities. Our partnerships are strategic and consultative, allowing us to match our partners’ needs to our strengths which in turn have a valuable and far-reaching impact on the community. One of our most important partnerships is that of the Southwark Schools’ Learning Partnership (SSLP) which was established as a London Challenge project in 2003 and today numbers 17 schools, including four independent senior schools and nine state schools. SSLP promotes projects between students and career professional development for teaching staff. Dr Joe Spence, Master, and Catherine May, Head of St Saviour’s and St Olave’s, are the current SSLP Co-Directors. “Our partnership work has never been so crucial,” according to Dr Spence. “At SSLP’s heart is a commitment to connecting apparently diverse schools, students and teachers in a club that exists for the benefit of all.” Partner pupils and staff shifted their activities online, embracing new activities to continue reaching as many pupils and staff as possible. The SSLP ran several impactful projects over academic year 2020-21, despite the challenges of the pandemic: Anti-Racism Project: In response to Black Lives Matter, SSLP pupils collaborated to create a short film and accompanying lesson plan on anti-racism aimed at a Year 8 audience. Participants attended a film screening at Theatre Peckham in May 2021. Thinking About: A series of webinar talks for SSLP pupils in Years 11 to 13 that proved incredibly popular for the 2020-21 academic year and will be extended further for the 2021-22 year. Guest speakers included David Lammy MP, Grime Artist Afrikan Boy and dystopian author Sarah Govett. More than 1,200 viewers watched these informative webinars to learn more about different topics and career paths. Oxbridge and Medical School Interviews: Dulwich held 47 mock Oxbridge interviews and 12 mock medicine interviews for SSLP pupils. At least 18 participating SSLP pupils received a positive offer.

In addition to our longstanding partnership with SSLP, Dulwich also holds educational partnerships across London. City Heights E-ACT Academy (Tulse Hill): Dulwich College and City Heights share experience and good practice to benefit both schools, and the College provides support for the Academy’s educational work. Thanks to one of our supporters, for example, Dulwich secured laptops for City Heights pupils, and one of our maths teachers attends the Academy one afternoon per week to support the Academy’s Year 11 mathematicians. Dulwich Wood Primary School: Dulwich began a new partnership with Dulwich Wood Primary School in which 10 Dulwich Wood pupils took part in weekly violin lessons with the College’s Head of Strings, culminating in a Year 3 performance for parents. Saturday Schools: We continue to run Saturday Science and Art lessons at the College to inspire local state primary pupils from Southwark, Lambeth and Lewisham. Due to the pandemic, the College ran lessons by Zoom, and more than 40 children from ten local primary schools took part – of those, more than 30% were on Pupil Premium – helping to bridge the gap for pupils in need during the pandemic. Staff Outreach: College staff support all areas of our educational partnerships. 30 staff members hold positions of governorship or trusteeship with partner and other charitable organisations. The Master Dr Spence, for example, is trustee of the Mark Evison Foundation and Dulwich Picture Gallery, and Deputy Master (External) Dr Pyke is Trustee of the E-ACT Multi Academy Trust. School-Centered Initial Teacher Training (SCITT): The College is the largest regional hub of the National Mathematics and Physics SCITT which was founded to address the acute shortage of teachers. The College is also a member of the National Modern Languages SCITT. In 2020-21, the College recruited, trained and arranged school placements for 13 maths and physics teachers and 15 modern languages teachers. Our trainees this year came from all backgrounds – academia, civil service, film, music and finance – the majority of whom have gone on to secure jobs in state schools including SSLP schools.

Just a few examples of the other ways that our pupils, staff and OAs shared their time and talents include: Combatting “Holiday Hunger” in Southwark: Young OAs Alec Bannister OA (2005-16) and Cam Henderson OA (2011-16) led staff, pupils and OAs to raise more than £5,000 in support of “Kitchen Social”, part of the Mayor’s Fund for London, to provide healthy recipe boxes to children in Southwark during the school holidays. Supporting Kampala’s Poorest Slum Areas: Upper School pupils competed in a one-hour fundraising lap challenge to support AFFCAD, a charity that aims to transform living conditions in Kampala’s poorest slum areas by empowering children, youth and women through education, health and economic empowerment programmes. Year 10 pupils ran an impressive 68 laps in one hour. Walking for Refugee Week: Pupils participated in a “Walk with Us” Strava challenge to raise funds and awareness for Refugee Week. Sue Mulholland, Director of Art and DT and Director of Free Learning, organised the challenge event: “For this year’s Refugee Week 2021, our pupils supported two incredible charities – Aegis Trust and Gua Africa – and I was delighted that the Gua Africa founder Emmanuel Jal and Aegis Trust CEO Dr James Smith joined us virtually to educate our community about the importance of working together to help refugees in need. Especially after several pandemic lockdowns, it was inspiring to see everyone wanting to connect with each other about such an important issue, and it made our Refugee Week theme (‘We cannot walk alone… walk with us’) all the more relevant.” Showcasing Shackleton: Typically, the College invites local primary schools to campus to visit the James Caird. Due to the pandemic, however, the College commissioned Hal Howe OA (2013- 20), a brilliant filmmaker, to create an original film about Sir Ernest Shackleton. The College then shared this film with local schools.

Since 1619 when Edward Alleyn founded Dulwich College as “God’s Gift,” the College has been committed to serving our wider community. As a result, Community Action is a core

feature of a modern Dulwich education. Due to restrictions, the College’s normal Community Action programme was suspended, but despite this, the College continued to encourage the sharing of time and talents for the betterment of community. The Revd. Tim Buckler, who heads up our Charity and Community Action outreach, stated:

“I was immensely proud that so many in our community were proactive in their desire to put our motto ‘raising awareness and promoting involvement’ into practice and in so doing played their part in bringing hope and light in a time of fear and sadness. An example of this was an initiative called ‘light by letters’ wherein pupils and staff wrote and posted letters and cards of encouragement to those who they thought might be struggling with loneliness. It was terrific to receive many reports of delighted recipients.”

Despite Covid restrictions, pupils and staff found innovative ways to serve the wider community. Service activities included: tutoring at local schools, combatting holiday hunger in Southwark and competing in an athletics lap challenge.



At Dulwich College, we pride ourselves on our

Last academic year 2020-21, when the Government closed schools in January 2021, teachers moved quickly to adjust their lessons, sports and societies to the “new normal,” enabling pupils to participate in physical education, sport, art and design technology, dance and theatre, virtually and later in-person.

holistic education. OAs, pupils and parents alike tell us that Dulwich inspired their passions for diverse things, from sport and music to theatre and debate. In academic year 2020-21, despite Covid restrictions, pupils still benefitted from the life-changing, engaging and inspiring academic and co-curricular opportunities that have long been available at the College.

Dance with Catherine Ibbotson, Head of Dance: “I designed choreography for the boys to do at home in a small space, and we even incorporated items from our home environment into our performances. We took inspiration from the West end show STOMP and got the boys moving with saucepans, containers, staplers and bottles to design their own STOMP performances. Though, of course, we would have preferred to be together in-person, I found that many boys pushed themselves out of their comfort zone and suprised me with their work. It was a joy to see them develop in this way.”

Bursary recipients participate fully in Dulwich’s holistic education. Thanks to our supporters, the College provides financial support for bursary recipients to take part in all activities, from sport and music to academic and co-curricular trips, so that all our pupils can gain the benefits of a full Dulwich education.



Rob Dembrey OA (1984-91) was born in East Dulwich. Teachers at Rob’s local state primary school remarked to Rob’s mother, a single parent, that he was a talented student who should consider applying to Dulwich College. When Rob toured the school, he immediately felt at home.

Piano with Luis Parés, Head of Keyboard: “Teaching piano during lockdown presented many challenges, and in many ways changed the way our pianists went about their learning. Whilst exams were cancelled and live concerts postponed, we quickly transitioned to teaching virtually, with all the difficulties that software presented at that time. On the positive side, more time at home allowed our pianists to practise more than ever before, and our teachers were able to correct many bad habits in our pupils when practising on their own instruments (height of the piano stool and tone production being the most common examples). In addition, the pandemic provided us with new learning opportunities, particularly in the digital space, including hosting many pre-recorded concerts and projects, and our first online Winter Concert and Bach Competition. I’m particularly impressed by the determination with which the boys adapted to this challenging time and learnt new skills so quickly.” Art and Design Technology with Suzanne Rowe, Teacher of Junior School Art and DT: “I recorded step- by-step Art and DT projects for boys to do at-home, and I designed them so that the boys spent as little time as possible looking at their screens and working as creatively as possible. Year 5 boys created their own 3D name sculptures, using any resource they had at home, and I was so impressed that our boys had such an appetite to be creative. It was also a delight to see families get involved - some parents and carers even joined us.” Football and Physical Education with Tom Whitehead, Head of Football: “20-21 lockdowns unfortunately coincided with the main football season, so we had to cancel all in person training and matches. Despite home learning, every student who had chosen football had the opportunity to participate in virtual tactical talks, fitness challenges and ball mastery sessions amongst the other weekly activities. It was our goal that we get the students playing and moving as much as possible, offering activities that all could get involved with, even those who had limited space to practice, whilst developing their tactical understanding of the game through access to discussions, videos, external speakers and analysis presentations. The groups really got creative recording their weekly challenges in various locations around their homes and it was brilliant to watch them compete against one another in the skills school challenge or try to improve on their previous bests each week in the keepie uppies. Although not much football was played, having such a high level of involvement combined with the passionate discussions about football made it such a positive even if a little different Lent Term.”

“Even at 10-years-old, my head and heart were set on it.” Rob was accepted to Dulwich and received transformative financial support without which he could not have attended the College. Today, Rob is grateful for the impact that a holistic Dulwich education had on him. “Without Dulwich, I’m not sure I would have the confidence I do today. I found at Dulwich that all interests and passions were equally valued – whether music, academics, theatre. The College made sure that I had everything I needed to succeed in terms of academics and co- curriculars, providing me with extra funding to purchase school blazers and rugby and cricket equipment. I’m grateful that so many supporters today support the Bursary Appeal. You are transforming lives, opening doors and supporting boys to be the best they can be.”

“I was one of the lucky ones who got a London County Council scholarship in the 1960s after passing the 11 plus. I enjoyed my time at Dulwich. It instilled in me a love of reading, the English language, biology and science. It opened my eyes to many exciting horizons, from the debating society to the library and Dulwich Picture Gallery. The education I received paved the way for university entrance (the first of my family to do so) and a wonderful career in veterinary medicine. I have a lot to be grateful to Dulwich for and am delighted to ‘pay it forward’ in a modest way so that others may also benefit.”

We are deeply grateful to all our benefactors who have financially supported the College.

The following Roll of Benefactors includes those who have so generously given between 1 August 2020 and 31 July 2021, as well as all our known Canon Carver Society members who have informed us of their kind decision to remember the College in their wills.

Jacqui MacDonald-Davis , parent of James Davis OA (2003-14) has made the generous decision to remember the College in her will. Jacqui remembers how much of an impact Dulwich made on her son James, enabling him to pursue his many passions including being a member of the school orchestra and choir, his love of rugby, and other sports, as well as being one of the first group of boys moving from the Junior school to the Lower school as an academic scholar. “There was never any question that I would remember Dulwich in my will. Dulwich College played such an important part of my and James’ life for so many years (from DUCKS to Year 13), and I’m delighted to be able to give back to the College in this way. As a parent and as an educator, it's about ensuring that future boys can benefit from a Dulwich education. I would recommend to anyone that they consider remembering the College in their wills.” “Though my family comes first, I know that even just a small percentage left to the College will make a tremendous difference. I’m proud that my gift will have a longstanding future by benefiting future Dulwich boys irrespective of their financial background.”

A gift in your will to Dulwich College is a fantastic opportunity to support the education of future generations of Alleynians, making an excellent holistic Dulwich education accessible to more and more talented boys from diverse backgrounds. We are so grateful to our growing numbers of supporters who choose to give back to us in this way, and if you have remembered the College in your will, we hope that you will tell us so that we can properly thank you for your generous gift. Over the past ten years, more the 22% of our Bursary Appeal has come from gifts in wills. These gifts in wills have made a significant impact on our ability to provide deserving pupils with the opportunity to access a Dulwich education. With your support, we can do so much more. As part of the Canon Carver Society, you will be invited to private events at the College and get to meet with your fellow supporters each year. If you would like to know more, please contact:

Matt Jarrett Director of Development +44 (0)20 8299 5335

Like Jacqui, anyone who remembers the College in their wills will be invited to join our Canon Carver Society. Established in 2004, it was named in honour of Canon Alfred James Carver, Master of Dulwich College (1858-83), who set the College on a new course following the Dulwich College Act of 1857. The changes he implemented transformed the College and enabled Dulwich to gain its reputation as one of the country’s leading schools.

Thank you
