Guiding Statements

At Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi, we believe that every student no matter their age has the right to access the sharpest minds, past and present, in order to receive the very best of teaching and learning. Our curriculum embraces all mediums of communication from around the world, exposing students to global views; thoughts, ideas and knowledge from which they develop their own international mindset. It is our belief that by doing this, our students not only learn about the world around them, but as they develop, they will have a greater ability to transform it in the future.

Our curriculum is academically rigorous. Dulwich students are in the business of learning and there is an expectation that they will rise to this challenge with discipline and good grace. We expect students to have exemplary manners and uphold our College values at all times; Aim High and Work Hard. Be kind and respectful. Make a difference.

We encourage healthy competition. We expect all students to ‘have a go’ and do their best. And we do this whilst always upholding the values of empathy, compassion and kindness. We expect our students to use their privilege for good.

At Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi, the education of the whole child is critical and our curriculum offers daily routines and opportunities to ensure that students of every age are able to develop socially and emotionally well. Whether they are serving each other food during our family-style lunches in the College restaurant, or participating in our student led agencies, like the Student Council. We believe it is our responsibility to nurture and support students’ voices at all ages, as they are the hearts and minds of our College. 

To realise this philosophy we believe the following five skill domains will cultivate the dispositions all learners will need to lead successful, meaningful and happy lives in the future:

Communication Skills
Social Skills
Self Management
Research
Thinking
