From Headmaster

Dear Parents, 


The College has been 'ablaze' with colour this week, thanks to our superb invited guest artist, Aaron Blaise. We are grateful to Dulwich College International for inviting such an accomplished guest artist, the film animator and book illustrator for a tour around Dulwich schools as part of Diversity series. We also thank our Art Department and Events Team for ensuring that students and teachers in all three schools had the chance to learn from Mr. Blaise and be inspired. He worked at Disney for over 20 years and was the animator on the Lion King, amongst other films and projects. For those who enjoyed the John Lewis Christmas ad featuring a bear and a hare, you may like to know that Mr. Blaise was the creative force behind this. His presentations were not only visually engaging, but also included anecdotes from the film world and useful life tips for our students. We hope Mr. Blaise will visit us again. 


Our students have excelled again on the awards front. The College has been presented with a prestigious ACAMIS Learning Service Grant, thanks to the initiative of our Head Girl, Yi Wen Lee. Her proposal was to help those less fortunate, through the medium of debate. The idea is to have several rounds of knock-out style debating on charitable themes. ACAMIS has provided 1500 US dollars to support this award and the College received a commendation at the recent ACAMIS Leadership Conference. The charities concerned will gain greater recognition through these debates and the winning debaters are able to donate more of the money to their charities. 20% of the funds will be retained so that the same event will take place the following year.


Not only this, the College has won 24 medals and 'Best School Award' in the North East Asian Maths Competition held at Keystone Academy in Beijing, against 16 competitor schools. Some students travelled to Seoul, others, depending on age groups, remained in Beijing. The DCB results were outstanding, and we thank the teachers who accompanied and prepared the students so well! The competition recognised mathematical knowledge and also skills in strategy, communication, collaboration, creativity and challenge.


Our Junior School has this week celebrated 'British Science Week' through exploration and discovery. The week commenced with an explosive Science assembly and each year group taking on a strand of exploration and discovery: 'in the home', 'outside, 'the world' and 'forces'. All JS students also spent time in SE21, where they had a 'virtual reality (VR)' session. Another impressive week of learning in our Junior School.  


Please note another email from me earlier this afternoon regarding the annual parent satisfaction survey. Your opinion is very important to us and we hope to hear from each family to better understand what we are doing well and where we can improve.

I hope that you have a lovely weekend. I am looking forward to opening the large debating event (Association of Global Debating) this Saturday and I wish the students and Mr. Broadhead and team the very best for this.



Kind regards,


Simon Herbert

Tickets on Sale Now: Dulwich Dinner Dance 2018


DCB's success is due in large part to the commitment of our supportive parent body. Our annual Dulwich Dinner Dance is an opportunity for our families, staff and friends of Dulwich to celebrate the community that we've built together.  It's also a time to raise funds for a good cause. Last year, a record high amount of 417,053RMB was raised, which was donated to Aiyou Young Heart Project to help children suffering from Congenital Heart Disease.


This year's profits from Dulwich Dinner Dance will support  a foster home and a local migrant school in Kunming: Tuan Yang Xue Xiao  ( U.S. registered charity) via the Yunnan Project, a partnership developed by our Senior School Student Charity Club Interact.
