Clive's story

Clive was at Dulwich from 1957 - 1964 and was a beneficiary of the “Dulwich Experiment” led by the Master, Christopher Gilkes. At its height, more than 85% of boys attended Dulwich with their fees paid by local authorities. Clive went on to Cambridge and is currently a Director of DRD Power. He is a member of our Canon Carver Society, that recognises those who have included support for Dulwich in their will. Read Clive's story.

With your help, we can look to a future where we can support half of the boys in the senior school with some form of fee relief. If you would like to consider making a gift, please visit our Ways to Donate page.
