Sport is very much part of our curriculum at Dulwich College Beijing. Engagement in sport not only aids our students’ physical development, improving their coordination and developing their skills in a variety of sports, but also helps them to learn how to be part of a team.
The Dulwich College Beijing Lions are very successful on the court, pitch, field, track and in the pool. Whilst our trophy cabinet continues to grow, this is not the only way we measure our success. Participation and progress, as well as individual and team success, are equally important to the value we place on Sports at Dulwich College Beijing.
Through sporting competition we encourage leadership and emphasise the importance of sporting behaviour. We believe it is important for our students to experience and celebrate success and, equally, to learn how to lose a match or tournament with good grace. Students from our College compete against others across the Dulwich College International family of schools in the Dulwich Games. In April 2015, we participated in the very first Dulwich Olympiad, a large-scale competition and opportunity for collaboration that will take place every four years. The next Dulwich Olympiad will be hosted by Dulwich College in London in 2019, when students from all Dulwich College International schools will have the opportunity to participate in the founding College’s quadricentennial celebrations.
Our students also participate in number of prestigious sporting events with other international schools from across Asia and have the opportunity to travel with their teams to compete. We host a number of sporting competitions through our membership of school associations, including the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) and Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS).
Our talented athletes are encouraged to join team practices during their after-school activities to hone their individual and team skills. Read more about our sporting seasons below.
