We are a co-educational day school, currently catering for students aged 2 to 17 in classes from Toddler to Year 13. We offer the IB Diploma Programme to Year 13 students in August 2019.

Our College is academically selective and follows an enhanced British curriculum adapted for the needs of our international student body.

Continuing the tradition of excellence started by the founding school, Dulwich College International graduates go on to study at leading universities in the UK, USA and around the world.

Our holistic education founded on scholarship is complemented by rewarding co-curricular programmes. Our students are encouraged to participate in sporting competition and every child from the age of seven is taught a musical instrument. Drama and opportunities for public speaking feature heavily from an early age.

We offer a dual language programme in English and Mandarin for students from two to seven years of age and daily Mandarin classes, streamed according to ability from the age of four. Additional modern foreign languages are offered in our Senior School. The close collaboration among our Colleges gives our students unique opportunities to participate in network events and benefit from the group's relationships with leading educational and artistic organisations.
