Dulwich College Boarding Prospectus
Wellbeing Our boarding houses are more than just places to stay during term-time, they feel like home. It is essential that our boarders experience a sense of belonging, happiness, and mental and physical engagement while they are with us.
Supporting the daily work of the Housemasters and Tutors, visiting speakers and senior members of staff deliver a series of evening sessions on subjects such as healthy eating, the importance of sleep and coping with stress.
Wellbeing support for boarders is extensive and the team comprises senior staff, Housemasters, Tutors, the Matrons, the Chaplain, the Medical Centre and a Counsellor, as well as the other boys, day and boarding. House Captains write to new boys to introduce themselves before they arrive, and all boys are involved in the settling-in process, providing tours of the house and the local area.
Food is a vital part of any teenager’s life, and our boarders eat together at breakfast and supper, and with the rest of the school community at lunch. Special diets are catered for and the Boarders’ Catering Committee meets regularly to ensure student requests are taken into account. The boarding house kitchens are also well stocked with essential items such as bread, milk, cereal and fruit, so no-one ever goes hungry.
“The boarding induction process runs throughout the year; there is a lot of information to absorb but it’s not essential to know it all immediately. The priority is building relationships and feeling settled and happy.”
