Friday 24 August 2018 Dulwich Newsletter 


From Headmaster

Dear Parents, 


It was a pleasure to welcome so many parents and families to the Newcomers' Fair today, which has reinforced the sense of community at DCB. We hope to see you at many more events this year.


This week our students have been settling back in to school life and welcoming all our new students who have joined their classes. Our DCB values are displayed in each classroom, and our teachers are already finding ways to encourage students to follow them and take them to heart. Respect, integrity and responsibility were top of the lists on all surveys and of obvious importance to our community.


This week was a chance to welcome the Dulwich College International (DCI) leadership team, who came to speak to our college staff; meeting with our new staff initially before addressing the entire staff. Chairman and Founder (Fraser White), CEO (Christian Guertler), Global Director of Education (Marc Morris), Regional Director of Schools, China (John Todd), Managing Director of Dehong Schools (David Yung), and Education Director for Dehong Division (Lesley Meyer) were all present and spoke passionately about the value of the group and what it means for our students to 'Graduate Worldwise'. They also thanked our DCB staff for their hard work last year. We are grateful for their visit and wish them well on the trips to all the Dulwich Colleges.


The remainder of the IGCSE results have now come in, and I commend our current Year 12 students and their teachers for their hard work. These students now have a solid base from which to tackle the challenges of the IB. DCB has again demonstrated that we stretch all our students to achieve their best.


Finally, I would like to thank two people missed from my list last week for their focus on making the summer works run so smoothly. Both Mr. Hu and Mr. Pan from DCI have helped guide the new building project from the very start and deserve recognition for their dedication to creating the best environment for our children.


Kind regards and have a good weekend,


Simon Herbert




NEW Parent WeChat Guidelines


Please note that informal parent WeChat groups, while useful for sharing school-related information, are not managed or monitored by the College. As these groups consist of Dulwich parents, we ask that the groups follow the school's communication guidelines. Please contact me if you have any questions.  Please click here

Update on Car Park and Traffic Procedures 2018/19



For the academic year 18/19 the buses will be directed to the main car park as usual, although this year the buses will not move from this area during the school day. The main car park will also remain and there will be parking for cars with passes. We are also keeping the Early Years parking area for Nursery children. 


The significant change is that we are moving all staff car parking to the area near the cricket pitch. This allows us to free up 60 car parking spaces and also create a drop off zone in the former staff car park for parents to use. Anyone using our car parks must use the bridge to ensure safety of students and accompanying adult at all times.


In addition to the above, we have also agreed with the Legend Garden management team that the area outside of Gate 7 will be given exclusively to cars dropping off toddlers into their new classroom. 


All cars using our car parks will not be permitted entry without a valid car parking pass. Parking passes for 2018/19 can be renewed and obtained  from the Main Reception.


Please note:  there is no VIP parking at DCB and no-one will be allowed access to the area of gate 7 in a vehicle without a pass.





The local government are carrying out sewerage pipe repairs and road repairs near the school which will exacerbate any parking issues and it is imperative that parents or drivers do not park in the middle of the road or on corners of roads to drop children off. 


The Linyin road has been closed to traffic until mid-November between Windsor Kindergarden (exit from the Airport Express) and Gate 7 with a detour in place .  We apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask parents to plan accordingly and expect few minutes delays in the morning due to this. The repairs are expected to take up to four months. 


We should also point out that DCB takes both Health & Safety and Sustainability very seriously and we encourage all families that live within 2 kilometers of the school to consider walking or cycling as this is better for the environment and general health of all.
