Affiliations & Accreditations

Dulwich College Beijing is fully accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS), the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the National Centre for School Curriculum and Textbook Development (NCCT).

In 2014 Dulwich College Beijing was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), which is approved by the UK Department for Education to evaluate British international schools globally. Our school received a very strong report confirming that our standards in all areas, compared to the best in the UK and the world, are indeed very high.

The Deputy Master (External) from Dulwich College, our founding school in London, inspects our College each year to ensure we maintain Dulwich College's standards of excellence.

Our network of schools has relationships and shared events with leading universities and organisations. Our students have attended masterclasses with artists and educators from the Berklee College of Music, Northwestern University, the Royal Irish Academy of Music, the Royal Northern College of Music and Trinity College Dublin. We have hosted academic presentations from the Universities of Cambridge, Bristol, Sheffield and St. Andrews, among others. Our Colleges have hosted debate workshops with Georgetown University and leadership seminars with Stanford OHS, and our teachers have participated in professional learning programmes with Duke NUS. Johns Hopkins University Centre for Talented Youth has tested some of our students and run workshops with our teachers. The Oxford Mathemagicians and a capella groups from Harvard, Yale and Princeton have also performed for us.
