Academic excellence continues to be the cornerstone of our Dulwich Colleges internationally. This year, we are very proud to celebrate another year of stellar academic achievements of our graduating class – their hard work, resilience and maturity as our students shine brighter than ever in such an unusual year.
Year 12 and 13 students in our Dulwich Colleges follow the IB diploma programme and this year’s IB graduates have continued to achieve outstanding results. Students from our Dulwich China schools averaged a score of 37 points out of a total possible 45, high above the global average of 29.9. One in 4 of our students achieved over 40 points and 3 of our students achieved a perfect score.
The results are an important part of the journey towards a great university education. Our students this year are heading to a range of world leading universities, including Stanford, Brown, Durham, Tsinghua, Royal Northern College of Music, HKUST, Imperial College, Barnard, Tufts, NYU Abu Dhabi, London School of Economics, NYU Stern Business School and many more, to study a diversity of subjects including psychology, international business, medicine, opera, social work, history, acting, politics and international relations, biochemistry, marine biology, pharmacy, and many more..
These outstanding results are especially significant given the unique circumstances our students faced this year due to the coronavirus outbreak. Supporting our students on their journey has been a strong and committed faculty and dedicated university counsellors, working hand-in-hand with our parent community to create an exceptional learning environment for our students – both on-campus and online. We congratulate all students across our Dulwich family of school for their outstanding achievement, and thank our teachers and parent community for partnering as one family to create a dynamic and enriching learning environment for each student throughout their time at Dulwich.
Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi students will commence their IGCSE exams in the coming year, following the footsteps of their fellow older students across the Dulwich international family of schools.
