The History of Friends


It all started in 1976. An ambitious sports tour was proposed and this is where the fundraising began. A fete was held in 1977, raising £20,000. The then Master of the College wanted to build on this great success. An elderly lady told The Master she had lived in Dulwich all her life and had never set foot in the College grounds. The FDC was created from this point.


“What a welcome. I’m so glad I attended the FDC Welcome on my son’s first day at Dulwich College”

“The Friend’s Welcome was a brilliant opportunity to meet other new parents. I was able to ask lots of questions many of which other parents were wondering about. I also found a role I could take on to help me feel more involved, I never thought I would do that”

“It’s wonderful to be involved with the Friends. I’ve found a role that fits in with my busy lifestyle.”
