Visiting Speakers

Dulwich has very active academic societies and which all have regular speakers coming to present to boys. With central London on our doorstep with its outstanding universities, we also have access to some of the world’s leading academics. If boys are interested in a society which does not exist as a discrete subject, then they are encouraged to set up their own society or club.
