Dulwich College

Boys boarding and day, London

Dulwich College is a vibrant and high-achieving community of day boys and boarders from age 7 to 18. In 1619 Edward Alleyn founded the College to provide education and lodgings for 12 scholars; today we have 140 boarders from the UK and 25 countries from around the world. We are academically selective, but diverse in our breadth of talents, character and backgrounds. It is this social mix that makes Dulwich a special place.
