Our Curriculum

Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi educates children from age 2 to 18. The primary teaching language is English, with a Dual Language approach in Mandarin and English in DUCKS. Children up to age 5 follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, and from Year 1 to Year 9, they follow the National Curriculum of England and Wales, which is enhanced to meet the needs of our international student body. In Year 10 they begin the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education), a rigorous two-year course that requires students to take a broad range of subjects covering maths and sciences, English and foreign languages, and the humanities. IGCSE will culminate in exams at the end of Year 11, and prepares students well for the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) which will start in Year 12 in 2021.

Our Approach to Learning

Our approach to learning nurtures confidence and intellectual curiosity in our students, preparing them for success in further education and life beyond. We offer a holistic education founded on scholarship and complemented by rewarding co-curricular programmes. Our network of schools has relationships with leading universities and organisations to bring unique learning experiences to our students.

We encourage our students to take pride in their achievements, both inside and outside the classroom, continuing the tradition of excellence started by Dulwich College. The success of our students is reflected in the university acceptances and scholarships that Dulwich international graduates receive every year. Our international alumni gain entry to some of the top ranked universities worldwide.
