From the principal

"At the core of a Dulwich education is an individualised focus on academic excellence, and developing talents through a quality extra-curricular programme that builds the character and confidence of every student. The staff at Dulwich Minhang take a very personal approach to each child’s learning and their progress. Your child is very much an individual when they come to our school, and not a number."

From the parents

“My children don’t just like going to school, they love it. Their days are colourful, active, challenging, interesting. They come home buzzing. Both of their teachers are excellent.”

Reception and Year 3 parent

“Dulwich is a school which allows children to really explore and find what it is they love. Whether it’s through the curriculum or the many opportunities to join in Dulwich network activities, I feel that the school presents children with amazing opportunities to grow. I am very happy to see how much my child has grown in the short time he has been at Dulwich.”
