Introduction from Dr Spence and Dr Pyke
That attention should be paid to its Founder’s charitable mission is embedded in Dulwich College’s enduring commitment to philanthropy, service and partnership. An ethos of social responsibility lies at the heart of the College’s Strategic Development Plan and is a key component of the co-curricular life of its students and staff. We believe that with privilege comes a duty to engage in partnerships that can benefit others, and across the College pupils and staff voluntarily contribute their time and expertise to a portfolio of partnership and community activities, thereby shaping a legacy of sustained engagement. That we benefit from each of these partnerships is also understood. Our outreach activities have three broad strands: Educational Partnerships; Community Action; Shared Facilities. This booklet offers you an introduction to Dulwich College’s current outreach work and sets out our aspirations.
Included are our colleagues’ contact details for each of our partnership strands; we and they welcome your engagement and feedback.

Southwark Schools’ Learning Partnership
Southwark Schools’ Learning Partnership (SSLP) is a long-standing collaboration between local schools. The partnership promotes projects for students and joint CPD (career professional development) for teaching staff. With the Master as the co-director of the partnership, Dulwich College provides leadership as well as a variety of projects that involve pupils and staff from the other member schools. The College’s appointment of a coordinator with dedicated time for SSLP has greatly enhanced SSLP’s impact.
In addition to Dr Spence’s role as co-director, a member of staff acts as the school link for SSLP with involvement from a wide pool of staff and students. Students play an active role on the Student Forum, giving voice to SSLP pupils.
Dulwich Literary Festival The Festival gave students the opportunity to enter Winter, a short story competition judged by Ali Smith.
Art Dulwich College Art Department jointly organised the Art of Learning from Art – an Art History lecture at the Dulwich Picture Gallery. “ The talk challenged me to think about the place art has in our community, society and wider world… at times during the talk I found this ‘overwhelming’ to comprehend.” Year 11 student
Geography Dulwich College Geography Department hosted a lecture about African and Arabian climate change, facilitated a
political geographer talking about technology, cultural mobility and warfare, and organised a University Taster Day consisting of a lecture and practical session.
Language Dulwich College MFL Department placed Spanish PGCE graduates in partner schools, providing 1,000+ hours of language oral support.
Introduced by Dulwich College, the Stuart Horne Foundation provides bursaries for student leadership courses with Outward Bound Canada.

SCITT: School Centred Initial Teacher Training
“The lecture [by Dr Sarah Garfinkel on the ‘Body and the Brain’] was intriguing where we learnt that our ‘gut instinct’ is an intuitive thing. As a successful neuroscientist, we were honoured to have had this opportunity with her and thanked Dulwich College for their hospitality."
The new national School-Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) courses are aimed at new graduates and career changers. The package offered to trainees, including the option to train at independent and state schools, makes this new course a very favourable option. The National Maths and Physics (NMAP) SCITT is run by Wycombe High School in High Wycombe, whilst the National Modern Foreign Languages (NMFL) SCITT is run by Silverdale School in Sheffield. There are three national hubs, with Dulwich College acting as the lead school for the London Hub. Hub schools coordinate other interested schools in the area and facilitate interviews, quality control and professional development. Dulwich College is looking for London schools to join the London Hub. Each partnership needs a mix of state and independent schools in order to offer the requisite training placements.
St Thomas Apostle College student
Dulwich College Careers Department invited SSLP schools to talks and networking opportunities with Old Alleynians, and to the Careers Convention which included universities, companies, professional institutes and gap providers. The department organised Entrepreneurs, an opportunity for students to explore ideas with successful professionals, and Architect Matters, located within the RIBA award winning Laboratory, where architects spoke with SSLP students. They also hosted Wings of Hope Back 2 School, giving young people an opportunity to have their aspirations raised by attending classes alongside leaders from industry and academia who became pupils of the day.

The Finance Networking event gave pupils from Dulwich College, The Charter School, St Thomas Apostle and Elmgreen School an opportunity to network with 35 professionals from the Finance and Professional Services sector.

“Our students found it useful both in terms of the content of the conversations that they had and also to have the opportunity to participate in networking. This is something that they don’t really get the chance to do so it was great for them to hone this particular (and crucial) skill.” Visiting school
Dulwich College was founded by Edward Alleyn in 1619 with the explicit purpose of helping what he termed ‘poor scholars’. Our support of academically strong boys from all economic backgrounds remains one of our central values today.
The Royal National Children's SpringBoard Foundation Dulwich College supports SpringBoard and its partner organisations by providing free means-tested places to boys, often from challenging circumstances, who will benefit from the structure and aspiration afforded by a boarding education. The benefits of this are: • being part of an international community • provision of structure and support that might not be available at home • The Bursary Appeal Fund has contributed £2,995,000 towards bursaries (as at July 2017) • 175 bursaries were provided during 2017/18 (162 in 2016/17) • 469 boys received a bursary and/or a scholarship in 2017/18 (437 in 2016/17) • In 2016/17, 30% of College pupils (in Year 7 and above) were in receipt of a bursaries and/or scholarships totalling £3,650,000
We offer means-tested bursaries and academic scholarships which we promote through local Primary Schools, encouraging local boys to apply for support. This helps us to maintain our diversity, and to support social mobility. Funding for Bursaries is drawn mainly from the income distribution of the Dulwich Estate, together with income generated from our educational partnership with Dulwich College International and from the generous benefactors of the Dulwich College Bursary Fund.
• broadening role models and peers • accessing diverse opportunities • responding to higher expectations
Aspirations To have a greater number of bursaries of 75% to 100% of school fees and to increase the number of boys and their families who are in receipt of financial support from 30% to 50%. Contact:
“A new school system seemed daunting at first, however, since the first day I realised that the students at the College were just like me and I had no issues fitting in.
