Relevant Experience

Mel joined Dulwich College (Singapore) in August 2014 after 7 years at Dulwich College Beijing. She held a variety of roles during her time there, from Head of Science to Assistant Head in the Senior School, and she also led professional development and performance management for staff across the whole College. She will officially be taking up the position of Head of Senior School from August 2021. 

Mel started her teaching career in the UK at a large school in Manchester, having graduated in Chemistry and French from the University of Liverpool. An interest in working overseas led to an international move and a post as Head of Chemistry at South Island School in Hong Kong. This was followed by a move to Vienna International School as Head of Science, but the draw of Asia was too strong, and in 2007 Melanie took up her first role in the Dulwich Group in Beijing.

Mel is joined in Singapore by her husband and their two children.
