Established in 2003, our Shanghai campus was the first of our ventures in China. Today, between the ages of 2-18, it has over 1400 students. Students have matriculated to top universities in the UK and USA – many of them winning scholarships. As with all our schools, there is a continual process of improving facilities, and in 2014 construction began on a new swimming pool complex. The success of the venture in Shanghai has catalysed the growth of Dulwich International in the region to the point that we now have strong and valuable links with Asia.
2016 sees the opening of a second campus of Dulwich College Shanghai in Minhang, in the west of the city. The school benefits from a brand new, state of the art campus with outstanding facilities, including an Olympic-sized swimming pool and a 500-seat theatre. Opening first with younger year groups, the College will grow into an all-though school over the coming years.
Our second school in China began welcoming students in August 2005. DC Beijing now caters for 1400 students, aged 2-18, of 45 different nationalities. The main site, where all students from Year 3 upwards study, is at Legend Garden. This campus benefited from a substantial upgrade in 2013: a new block opened with 27 new classrooms, 2 new libraries and the 602-seat Wodehouse Theatre. Additional facilities for our Early Years students are situated at the Riviera campus.
Often described as ‘the Venice of the East’, Suzhou is situated just 30 minutes from Shanghai by high speed train. Our campus there opened in 2007. Our 970 pupils, from ages 2 to 18, enjoy excellent modern facilities. A new Senior School building opened in 2013, including a 700-seat theatre, science laboratories and a suite of music rooms. This is in addition to the College’s 2000 square meters of playing fields, aquatics centre and 400 metre running track. DC Suzhou is also the first of our international schools to offer boarding in a brand new facility.
Established in 2010, our Seoul campus was the first international Dulwich College to be opened outside of China. Located in the downtown suburb of Banpo, Seocho, the College has over 600 students originating from 39 countries across 6 continents. The location of the College is unusually central within Seoul, and this has led the architects to design some ingenious features of the school buildings.
Opened in August 2014, the College boasts a state of the art campus and an inspiring, enthusiastic body of staff. The Singapore College currently caters for students aged 2-14 (Early Years to Year 10), but will grow year on year into a fully-fledged all-though school. The College will eventually have capacity for 2500 students, which will include a large boarding community.
Dulwich College Yangon is the newest member of the Dulwich Commonwealth of Schools and heralds an exciting new era for international education in Myanmar. The College in Yangon will have two campuses. The established Pun Hlaing campus currently welcomes students up to Year 6 and will be a primary/prep school. The brand new Star City campus will open in 2017 and become an all-through school with world-class facilities.
This is an initiative between Dulwich College International and Suzhou High School, an educational institution dating back to 1035 and the leading Chinese high school in Jiangsu province. The Dulwich High School provides both IGCSE and AS/A Level courses, preparing Chinese students between the ages of 14 to 18 for top universities worldwide. Those who have completed their A levels have gone on to study at institutions such as Cambridge, Cornell and Imperial College London.
Similar to the programme in Suzhou, the Zhuhai International High School follows an IGCSE and AS/A Level curriculum to give Chinese students the best preparation for entry into universities overseas. The programme operates in conjunction with Yung Wing, a leading independent Chinese middle school in Zhuhai, which is situated close to Macau. The High School aims to develop students’ full potential in both academic and co-curricular pursuits, with a special focus on English language acquisition. In 2012, Dulwich Zhuhai was proud to announce that one of its students achieved the highest score in the world for IGCSE Mathematics, while in 2013 another student topped the IGCSE tables for Music.
