In the 2016-2017 academic year, Dulwich has been honoured to receive three distinctions: the prestigious British International School Award in the “Teaching Initiative of the Year” category, a Diplomats’ Choice in the “Best International School” category, as well as being named “Best International School” at the Expat Life Awards!

“We are delighted that the hard work, inspiration and creativity of our staff and students have been recognised not once, not twice, but three times this year – a feat that will be hard to repeat! Of course, the support of our parent community is crucial to the high expectations, challenge and collaboration that form part of the Dulwich College Beijing education. Thank you all and well done.” Simon Herbert, Dulwich College Beijing Headmaster, said.

 Eleven schools applied for the “Teaching Initiative of the Year” at this year’s British International School Awards ceremony, held in London on 23 January. DCB was named as the winner among four finalists for our innovative work in our Blended Maths programme. DCB was certainly proud to be recognized among such strong global competition.

 The 2016 Expat Life Awards in September saw 10 nominees in the “Best International School” category with the winner decided by a huge number of online votes, whilst February’s Diplomat’s Choice Awards, organised by the daily newspaper, Global Times, saw more than 200 Beijing-based diplomats giving their views.

 DCB is delighted for all we have accomplished this academic year and we shall strive to keep up the momentum going forward!
