Situated in the leafy and green west of Minhang district, Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi caters for families living in the west of Shanghai who are seeking the world-class holistic education that Dulwich College has become synonymous with. Drawing on 400 years of rich Dulwich heritage, at Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi our curriculum is academically rigorous, yet the education of the whole child is seen as critical. Our wellbeing programme and range of co-curricular opportunities available to all children encourages academic, physical, social and emotional growth. Our robust Mandarin programme ensures that all students, regardless of background, can thrive in the local culture and context. Committed to student leadership and service, our students uphold the College Values at all times: Aim High and Work Hard. Be Kind and Respectful. Make a Difference.
Our curriculum is based on the British National Curriculum and is appropriately enhanced to meet the needs of our international student body. In Years 10 and 11, our students complete the academically rigorous IGCSE, which then leads to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in Years 12 and 13. At Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi, IB students must select three Higher Level and three Standard Level subjects. In combination with these subjects, students are required to fulfil the requirements of the Core components of TOK, EE and CAS to gain full certification in the IB Diploma Programme. All students will also undertake wellbeing lessons as part of their timetable.
Most of our Senior School students also complete the Duke of Edinburgh International Award throughout their time at the College. Although the Award is not compulsory, it fits in well with the CAS requirements of the IBDP and is an opportunity for students to gain an additional qualification. Participating in the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others; it pushes young people to their personal limits and recognises their achievements consistently. The Award encourages young people to design their own programme of activities, set their own goals and challenge themselves to achieve their aims.
Senior School at Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi is highly regarded not only for our academically rigorous programme and existing track record of strong results, but also for our broad, holistic provision. We place a strong emphasis on student leadership and wellbeing, enabling our students to Graduate Worldwise.
