The language of instruction is English and the College is co-educational and non-denominational.

Academics and academic performance

The academic programme is based on the English National Curriculum for England and Wales. The College offers the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) in Years 10–11 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Years 12 and 13.

Unlike in Dulwich College in the UK, the IB exam is used to determine university eligibility instead of the A-levels.[3]

All students from year 1 on are required to study Mandarin Chinese.[2]

In 2010 the average score for International Baccalaureate students was 34 of 45. 15% of Dulwich's students scored above a 40 that year. In 2010 about 75% of Dulwich Shanghai's IGCSE entries were A or A*.[2]

Student body

As of 2011, the school had 1,350 students from 42 countries. 18% were Americans and 17% were British. Several other students' families originated from Australia, Hong Kong, Germany, India and Singapore. The school has student leadership roles such as Head boy/girl position, Prefect positions and others.

Tuition

As of 2011 the school's annual tuition includes school uniforms and examination fees, while it does not include transport and lunch. Two-day toddler programmes have yearly tuitions of 27,700 renminbi (£2,619). Students in full-time sixth form college programmes have yearly tuitions of 220,600 RMB (£20,855).[2]
