Dulwich College Beijing (DCB; Chinese: 北京德威英国国际学校) is a British international school with campuses in Beijing, China. It is a branch of Dulwich College,[1] it was the second to join the Dulwich College International (DCI) family of schools, and opened in August 2005. As of 2013 it has over 1,450 students from 12 months to 18 years.[2]

In 2006, The Guardian listed Dulwich College Beijing jointly with Dulwich College Shanghai as among the best British international schools in the world, the only schools in its list to be located in China, citing "excellent music and sports facilities" and a majority English speaking faculty.[3] In 2009 the school's Chinese department director, Chen Xialin, said that the school teaches English and mathematics in small classes divided by different levels so that students may study in a "confident environment".[citation needed] 60% of Dulwich teachers are British.

Campuses

There were two campuses in Beijing: The Legend Garden (丽京花园) Campus in Shunyi District, and the Beijing Riviera Campus in Chaoyang District.[4] The two campuses served 1- to 18-year-olds and 1- to 6-year-olds respectively. However, in 2018, the Rivera campus has been made no longer active. Merging the students of the two campuses into one has occurred.
