At Dulwich College, we are committed to building bridges to the world because we want our students to live, learn and graduate Worldwise. We want our students to thrive overseas at university and beyond. This isn’t just about developing their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. It’s about developing a strong sense of self-identity and an equally strong value system. We want our students to be proud of who they are and confident in their abilities and achievements. We want our students to make a difference in the world and it’s our duty as educators to inspire and empower them. Our College Curriculum is purposefully international both in terms of content and in mindset. As such, I am delighted to announce that our College has been accepted into the prestigious Council of International Schools (CIS). CIS is a membership community committed to high quality international education and promoting global citizenship. It includes more than 1300 institutions – 736 schools and 618 colleges and universities representing 116 countries. Our acceptance followed a rigorous evaluation process, which involved learning observations and interviews with students, staff and parents. Acceptance into CIS is a strong endorsement of the quality of education at our College:
The leadership's "students come first" approach to well-being and aspirations for student learning is manifest in encouraging collaboration and innovation in curriculum design, assessment, enrichment, and technology. These aspirations are being realised, with clear and effective strategic educational plans 2019-22 in place to guide the way forward.
The membership evaluation report identified many strengths:
- Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi is very well aligned to its own stated purpose and direction, in terms of its founding guiding principles.
- Passionate, articulate students.
- Dedicated staff who are proud to be helping to grow the College.
More importantly, the report provided valuable guidance on how the College can improve and develop. We believe that, ‘getting better never stops’ and are committed to aligning ourselves against the very best institutions in the world.
