What The Good Schools Guide says..
Sitting amidst vast manicured pitches, the college is a gracious and intriguing south London landmark. Seventy acres of playing fields recently re-seeded, and rugby is the triumphant sport with 1st XV recently winning the NatWest Schools cup for the third consecutive year. Sartorial traditions define the college – ‘colours’ blazers are boldly striped affairs awarded in recognition of achievement. ‘Buy a big size,’ advises the school captain – they will be de rigueur come OA reunions.
What the school says...
Founded in 1619 by Edward Alleyn, Dulwich College our primary duty is to ensure that all our pupils fulfil their academic potential. We aim to inspire our pupils, and to build the confidence required to explore beyond the boundaries of the curriculum. Learning for its own sake is encouraged alongside focused and dedicated study.
We look to provide a wide range of sporting, cultural and adventurous activities for pupils to enjoy and through which they can learn to work co-operatively and to take a lead. Within its 70 acre site Dulwich Colleges excellent facilities support both the boys formal studies and their activities outside the classroom. Boys are encouraged to participate in expeditions and community-based activities.
Every boy is allocated to one of the eight Houses which encourages a fierce but healthy loyalty. The House system also supports the pastoral care of the boys. Boys proceed from Dulwich to the most competitive of universities, in the UK and in the world, and thereafter into all the major professions. The College has a long standing reputation for producing some of the finest actors, musicians, sportsmen and writers in the country. ...Read more

Since 2009, Dr Joseph (Joe) Spence BA PhD (mid-50s), a graduate in modern history and politics; the Irish histories and literature of his postgrad line his study walls. Previously headmaster of Oakham School and for 10 years until 2002 held the prestigious position of master in college at Eton, housemaster to the King’s scholars, ‘surrounded by the brightest’; it was here he found his vocation. His first decade at Dulwich College will coincide with the college’s 400th anniversary, entwining their legacies.
Grammar school educated, he describes his career path as the ‘story of accident’, a happy one. The turning point was a friend’s encouragement that one ‘no longer has to be behind a desk as headmaster’. Immensely warm and charming, putting one at ease, the embodiment of the oft repeated...
