I am delighted to welcome you to the Development pages, which we will be working to update over the summer ready to launch in full in September 2012. We have a new Development team here at the College and I would like to take this opportunity to explain what we do. We are here to support the continued advancement of the College and to foster relationships with the Alleyn Club and the wider Dulwich community, engaging with parents, former parents, OAs, Friends of Dulwich College, donors and former staff. We have an ambition to promote the wide variety of opportunities and benefits available to the community and we have a particular role to promote the College as a charity.
As well as our wider community based role, we have a responsibility to fundraising. We have an absolute commitment to build on the superb foundation of our bursary appeal fund and allow even more bright boys access to Dulwich College in the generation leading up to our anniversary in 2019. We are also here to support the Master’s vision to match the quality of our teaching with the quality of our campus. We have an urgent need to re-model the science building, which has a condemned wing and outdated facilities. We are delighted with the progress of our appointed architects, Grimshaw (grimshaw-architects.com), who are working on a RIBA Stage C design to place a building beside the historic Barry building which will celebrate the twin Cultures of Art and Science at the heart of the College campus. A generous anonymous donor has provided match funding. We would be delighted to discuss the science building with you.
In this my third term at the College I hope that you will take every opportunity to get in touch to share with us your own stories and, where possible, your support. I look forward to talking with as many of the College community as possible and to crafting our shared vision for the future of the College together.
Director of Development
