DCB Shortlisted for Two Prestigious International Awards


Dulwich College Beijing is delighted to be shortlisted for two prestigious awards celebrating innovation and the groundbreaking work in education by British schools around the world.


DCB has been nominated for the British International School Award 2018 in the category of Outstanding Initiative Leading to Creativity in Learning.  We are shortlisted in the esteemed company of British International School of Chicago, Lincoln Park and British School Jakarta. The winners will be revealed at the gala awards evening at the Grand Connaught Rooms, London on 22 January 2018. 


“Creativity is a major focus for us as a British International School in Asia and we have been trying to give the responsibility over to our learners,’ said Simon Herbert, Headmaster, commenting on our nomination.  ‘Our Approaches to Learning curriculum is now student driven and applicable to real world problems, culminating in student-led Year 9 trips for over 100 students, where all the key decisions from planning of transport, catering and communications, through to budgeting, accommodation choice, service activities and media response are made by students.’
