Founded in August 2003, with the opening of its Dulwich College Shanghai Kindergarten campus (DUCKS) initially catering for 18 children, Dulwich College Shanghai has rapidly expanded to meet demands for providing a quality education to expatriate children. It currently retains an enrolment of over 1,500 students from over 40 countries across each of its three schools; DUCKS, Junior School and Senior School. Catering for students aged 2 - 18 years old, the College follows an enhanced English National Curriculum from Toddler to Year 13, offering the IGCSE in Years 10-11 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Years 12 and 13. The College is co-educational and non-denominational committed to the highest standards of excellence academically, in the performing arts and on the sporting field. The College educational philosophy places equal emphasis on a student's intellectual and personal development.
