Dulwich College is an independent boarding school for boys in southern London, founded in 1619 by Shakespeare’s theatre colleague, Edward Allen, and magnificent buildings in the heart of the campus date back to 1869.

On 28 hectares of open green space in southern London, Dulwich College is located - a college for boys, famous for its centuries-old history and rich culture. Here, the air is literally saturated with tolerance and respect for the college, which accepts within its walls all representatives of our diverse community and appreciates the historical roots of each of the students.

The college is a 20-minute drive from central London and quite a bit further from Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Next to the college is the small town of Dulwich, where students drop by on weekends. There you can visit the famous art gallery, take a walk in the park and admire the very first college building, which was built in the 17th century.

Dulwich College provides its students with opportunities to express themselves in sports, culture and diverse trips. The college is equipped with modern classrooms with all the necessary equipment, and living conditions are at a very high level.

The school has approximately 1,700 students.
