Dulwich College Beijing, established in 2005, is a dynamic, high-performing, co-educational independent school catering for 1450 expatriate children aged 1–18 from forty-five different countries across six continents. The College comprises three schools, each with its own Headteacher: Early Years, Junior School and Senior School. We offer an enhanced English National Curriculum and EYFS in Foundation Stage, and Key Stages 1, 2 and 3, International GCSEs in KS4 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in KS5. We are situated in the capital city of the second largest and fastest growing economy in the world, 45 minutes from both the Great Wall and Tiananmen Square. We were awarded British International School of the Year in 2011 and in March 2014 were inspected by the British-based Independent Schools Inspectorate, ISI, who reported that, ‘The quality of the pupils’ achievements is excellent, reflecting the successful fulfilment of the school’s aims. The school develops confidence in its pupils, enabling them to apply their skills and talents across the curriculum. Pupils are supported by excellent teaching and their attitudes to learning are exemplary.’ This year we have just heard that the College has been shortlisted for a British International School Award for Teaching Initiative. We have sister schools in Seoul, Shanghai, Suzhou and Singapore, all of which draw on the educational vision and values of Dulwich College London.
