From our Head of College

I joined Dulwich College Beijing (DCB) as the Head of College, from August 2020.  It was a particular time when everyone's lives and work were affected by the global pandemic of coronavirus. During my months of transition, which happened simultaneously with the changes worldwide, I observed how the DCB faculty overcame the challenges and worked together to deliver high-quality education in trying circumstances, enabled by the trust and committed support of our families. Dulwich College Beijing is not only brick and mortar with modern facilities, but it’s a place built upon dedication, passion, and a "one family" culture where students, teachers, and parents work together to share a sense of community.

As a member school of the Dulwich College International family, DCB draws upon over 400 years of tradition and experience from our founding College in London. Through listening to our parents' and students' feedback, we are able to adapt this Dulwich heritage into Beijing's unique educational and cultural environment and develop a bespoke learning experience that helps our students grow as learners and as people.

AT DCB, students come first! We offer a friendly, student-centred learning environment. Our rigorous academic programme is complemented by a cocurricular programme that includes a range of opportunities for students to excel and find balance. Besides academic excellence, students show passion through artistic pursuits, in the sporting arena and make a difference to others through ongoing service-learning projects. We want our students to have the skills and motivation to make a difference in the world, and character and values are integral to educating our students. Our values of resilience, confidence, respect, integrity, responsibility, open-mindedness, and kindness are what we model and expect in our students. These dispositions will enable our students to navigate their world today and hold them in good stead for their future.

We know that positive student-teacher relationships are essential for individuals to reach their full potential. We are proud of our teachers.  More now than ever, our teachers are pioneering educational innovation and they partner with our parents to nurture the students' learning and wellbeing.

I hope you find our website informative. If you would like more information or would like the opportunity to visit our campus, we shall be delighted to help you discover the benefits a DCB education provides to our students.


Warm regards,


Anthony Coles
