Extra-Curricular Activities

From the start of this academic year alone at DCB, there are over 160 extracurricular activities taking place from sport, music, drama, art, robotics, Chinese reading, cooking, current affairs, philosophy just to name a few.

The activities fall under the following themes but are not limited to these; academic, creative, STEAM, debating, and public speaking, performing arts, service, and sport.

The extracurricular activities are led by members of staff, external agencies and a wide range are led by student leaders. This further provides leadership opportunities for our students to grow and develop holistically.

Each student leader has a member of staff who act as their mentor or coach.

Extracurricular activities take place during lunchtimes and every evening at DCB. It is quite common for our sports, performing arts and drama programmes to run weekend sessions and events during the weekend.

Student leadership workshops and training sessions are built into the student support strand of the wellbeing model throughout the year for our Senior School students. There is also a student leadership workshop put on by the prefect team for aspiring prefects.

Residential trips in each year group provide service and educational experiences that enable students to reach out of their comfort zones. These are vertically aligned and planned in collaboration with our various trip providers.

DCB is also a part of the international school community, a member of school associations such as ACAMIS, the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA), and the Dulwich family of schools, which provides students with a number of extensive opportunities across academics, sports, arts, and global citizenship.

Dulwich Community Programmes

While ECAs and sports teams are run or supervised by DCB staff, Dulwich Community Programmes (DCP) offer enrichment courses run by external instructors and coaches. The activities take place on campus after school or on the weekends and are open to DCB students and the wider community. Offerings vary each term and include physical activities such as dance, football and swimming, or sci-tech activities such as coding, robot programming and monster science.

During the summer break, DCP offers swimming camp for children.

DCP registration and fee information are sent to parents each term. There are even some offerings for adults!
