Dulwich College

Dulwich College has a social mission, set out in its charter and embodied its commitment to the provision of bursaries. In 2017/18 175 means-tested bursaries were awarded, of which 126 were worth between 75% and 95% of the standard school fees. The income distribution of the Estate is used exclusively for bursaries and is forecast to fund 152 College bursaries this year.

The College focuses on deep bursaries for boys for whom its education would be a life-transforming opportunity. It also recognises the challenge for families for whom an independent education is just beyond their reach and therefore it offers a number of bursaries of smaller amounts.

The College ethos is that it is strongest when it is diverse in social mix, breadth of talents, character and backgrounds. Promoting open access by significantly increasing the ability to offer a Dulwich College education to boys whose families do not have the financial means, is core to its ambition, benefiting the community in and beyond Dulwich.

The capital distribution made by the Estate last year has been added to the College endowment and has supported the refurbishment of the Grade II* listed iconic Barry Buildings.
