Dulwich College is one of the UK's oldest independent schools, founded in South London as a boys' school in 1619.
The College campus is an expression of our learning philosophy. We offer an educational environment designed to nurture the intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development of our students.

The ability to communicate effectively in English is probably the single most important criteria for becoming a successful student in the UK or the US. Therefore, we insist that all our lessons are conducted in English and students are required to speak English in the classrooms and corridors throughout the school day.
Beyond the academic study of English, Dulwich Zhuhai also encourages students to develop their skills in communication. The skills of debating, presenting, public speaking and group collaboration are highly valued in Western universities, particularly so in the US, and these skills help students to become confident public speakers in English.
With English now the world’s most widely spoken business language, anyone able to speak it will enjoy greater opportunities. So we teach it not as a second language but as another first. From the time they enter the A-level programme, all students enjoy full immersion in English, which they must speak at all times while at school. We also go beyond speaking, reading and writing, with workshops and activities that truly immerse Dulwich international A-level students in the richness of western culture.
To pass the entrance test of Royal College of Music is not easy at all; however her 4-year school life at Dulwich and her own family environment have brought her outstanding English ability. As a result, her two papers both passed, which finally led her to the opportunity of the interview.
