Dr Pyke’s Annual Visit to DHZH

Dr Cameron Pyke, Deputy Master (External) of Dulwich College, visited Dulwich Zhuhai in February, following his visit last year. “It was a pleasure to revisit the Hengqin campus. The Head of School continues to demonstrate authentic and respected leadership across the school community and is passionately committed to holistic education.” Dr Pyke shared.  


During this two-day visit, Dr Pyke met with the management team, student representatives and senior parent representatives, and also gained a comprehensive understanding of student development, curriculum, academic performance, campus facilities and safety, as well as the university admissions results of recent graduates.
Parents of senior students particularly commented on the “best-fit” pathway offered by Dulwich Zhuhai, which enables their children to become more independent and motivated, to find their own interests and to have clearer goals for their future study and development. Dr Pyke said this was part of the Dulwich College education. He warmly welcomed parents who wish to visit their children in the UK to contact him and visit Dulwich College.
This year's newly elected leaders of the student council at Dulwich Zhuhai spoke to Dr Pyke about their school life and their involvement in various activities and annual events organised by the Dulwich Zhuhai and Dulwich International School Family, including last term's production of Shrek the Musical, the Global Citizenship and sustainability workshops, academic competitions and their trip to Xi'an for the Student Leadership Conference and the Shakespeare Festival in Beijing.
Dr Pyke used to pay annual visits to all Dulwich family schools, engaged with students, staff and parents, to ensure learning quality and support the development of meaningful educational links between all students and teachers within the Group. In addition, Dulwich Zhuhai students have the chance to visit other Dulwich campuses in other regions and engage with fellows from diverse backgrounds and cultures during inter-school events, including the Shakespeare Festival in partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC), Dulwich Olympia, academic competitions, and workshop by masters.
“This was a very positive visit and I thank Clare and her team for the commitment and vision of their ongoing leadership of the school. The senior leadership team should be congratulated that signs for the future development of the school are encouraging and that tertiary outcomes remain strong.” Dr Pyke said he was very much looking forward to next year's visit.
