Both our children have been attending Dulwich since September 2016. Maia has developed in confidence and her grades have improved dramatically; she also speaks highly of her teachers. We are particularly impressed with the drama department; the standards of their productions are consistently high. Emil is a professional actor so he tends to be more critical than me, but even he had nothing but admiration and praise for the different productions.
The school is committed to developing students who are passionate and proactive about making a positive difference to the world. Maia and Silas have become more aware of global issues and happily take part in a range of community service activities, such as helping out at Wishing Hearts. Maia is involved in organising a photo exhibition to help raise money for the sister school that Dulwich supports in Cambodia. Silas has had a terrific time in Juniors. His teacher taught him how to save and invest money; if only I’d learnt this at 10 – I’d be retired by now! Silas flourishes in sports, and has been offered numerous opportunities to compete in football, rugby, swimming and more. He has also discovered a love of art, and he went from being a non-mandarin speaker to Mandarin Ambassador in a year.
Being familiar with the reputation of the college in London, I knew that this would be an ideal school. When we finished our school tour two years ago, Maia whispered to me, “Thank you so much for letting me come here, I think it’s going to be amazing.” And it turns out she was right.
