Dulwich College International Shines at China Schools Awards

We are proud to announce a momentous achievement – Dulwich College International have had our commitment to exceptional education recognized at the esteemed China Schools Awards, winning three prestigious awards out of an impressive total of five nominations! 

The China Schools Awards, organised by the British Chamber of Commerce in China, recognise and celebrate the achievements and best practices of international-oriented K12 education in China. Let’s take a closer look at the awards honoured to Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi and Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong


Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi won in two categories – the Diversity & Inclusion Award and the Students for Sustainability Award.


Dulwich Puxi's steadfast belief in the power of diversity and inclusion underpins its educational philosophy, leading the school community to thrive on a strong sense of belonging, fostered through an inclusive curriculum and learning environment that promotes respect and intercultural understanding.


Instilling a sustainable mindset in students is a cornerstone of the education provided at the College. It actively promotes environmental and social responsibility through extensive curriculum integration, service-learning initiatives and strategic partnerships with organisations such as Elevated Honey Co, the Million Tree Project and Hearts and Hands.


The launch of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report further underlines the school's commitment to making a positive impact on society and the environment, aligning its efforts with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  


I am incredibly proud of our community that Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi has achieved recognition in both categories. These accolades highlight our holistic approach to education, where academic achievement is enhanced by a strong sense of belonging, and where sustainability is interwoven into every aspect of our educational journey.
