Located in the picturesque area of Dulwich in London, Dulwich College is a distinguished and renowned independent day and boarding school for boys. With an esteemed history dating back to 1619, it has earned a reputation for its exceptional academic standards and competitive admissions process. The school currently educates over 1800 pupils, providing them with a nurturing and enriching learning environment. [1]


Dulwich College is a member of the prestigious Eton Group and is characterised by rigorous academic provision. By fostering innate abilities in conjunction with dedicated effort, the education on offer at Dulwich College is tailored to cater to the diverse needs of its students, encompassing both academic and non-academic aspects of their development. 


The comprehensive curriculum spans a wide range of disciplines, including sciences, languages, humanities, social sciences and technology, inspiring boys to embrace their inquisitiveness and intellectual versatility through active participation in their learning journey.


While classroom-based education forms the foundation of the school’s philosophy, Dulwich College places significant importance on enrichment activities. Adhering to the school’s culture of enthusiasm and innovation, boys are encouraged to participate in a wide array of over 50 clubs and societies, including Climate Change Society, chess, Race Activism and debating. [2]


The Dulwich ethos is rooted in the principles of equality and its values are built upon respect, fostering an environment where pupils are encouraged to make ethical decisions and demonstrate integrity. In line with this, the college empowers boys to navigate challenges with confidence and overcome obstacles with grit, enabling them to thrive academically, socially and emotionally.


Dulwich College 11 Plus (11+) Admissions Process


Open Mornings form an important part of the admissions process. Typically held in the Autumn Term (September and October), these events will help you and your child become familiar with the extensive facilities on offer, as well as the school’s rich history and welcoming staff. Booking is made through this page.


In the later stages of this process, your child will be formally assessed using a bespoke online test and a paper-based exam. Please note that in order for your child to be considered for the exams, he will have to be registered with the school first. The registration fee of £160 is non-refundable and the deadline for applications is in late October of the year preceding entry.


The examinations are held in December. Selected candidates for 11+ entry will be invited to the school to be interviewed by a senior member of staff  the following month. Please note that the quality of the reports from your child’s previous school will also be taken into consideration. Successful candidates will be offered a place in February.


If your child performs at a very high standard in the 11+ exam, he will be automatically entered for an Academic Scholarship. This award ranges in value from 10% to one third of tuition fees. Music, Art and Sports Scholarships are also available.


To families who struggle with paying fees, Dulwich College offers means-tested bursaries. More details about these awards, including the relevant criteria, are available on this page
