Dulwich College Boarding Prospectus
The Master’s Welcome
Introduction to Boarding
I am delighted to take this opportunity to celebrate the many benefits of boarding at Dulwich, and would encourage you to find out more about life at the College through our website and, ideally, by visiting us where you will be made most welcome. Our boarding community comprises over 20 nationalities, including a number of boarders whose families are based in London and elsewhere in the UK, and our boarders enjoy facilities which are second to none. The boys frequently describe their boarding house as a ‘home from home’ and their welfare is assured by Housemasters and Tutors with a level of commitment which places them genuinely ‘in loco parentis’.
At Dulwich College we are very proud of our boarding community. Edward Alleyn founded our College in 1619 to provide education and lodgings for 12 scholars. Today we have a thriving and harmonious community of 130 boarders from the UK and around the world which remains at the heart of the College. Together, we all aim to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment, allowing boys to extend their intellectual and emotional development in an atmosphere of positive encouragement. We aim to foster mutual respect, trust, tolerance and an
understanding of the range of cultures that can be found in the boarding houses and in the College. By the time boys leave, we expect them to be confident, grounded, and considerate and to have an ability to integrate with people from all walks of life. We have four boarding houses, located around a lush green campus twelve minutes by train from Central London. Old Blew and The Orchard are located in wonderful grounds catering for around 55 boys from Year 7 to Year 13. Ivyholme and Blew House each accommodate 40 Year 12 and 13 students, all in spacious en-suite study rooms. If you have any questions after reading our prospectus, please do not hesitate to contact me or our Registrars. We would be delighted to talk to you about any aspect of life as a pupil at Dulwich College.
Boarding teaches lessons for life – independence, tolerance and working as a team – our boarders leave not only with outstanding academic results but with an equally valuable self-confidence and a global perspective which will serve them well in later life.
