From our Head of College
We would like to welcome you to Dulwich College Yangon, a school that heralds an exciting new era for international education in Myanmar. Based on two extensive green field sites - the ongoing expansion of our Pun Hlaing campus and the opening of our Star City site in 2017 - Dulwich College Yangon will give the city world-class educational provision that will inspire students and staff at the College.
Dulwich College Yangon offers a friendly, student-centred learning environment on our purpose-built campuses. We combine academic excellence with a holistic approach to education to enable our students to reach their full potential. This is achieved by delivering a rigorous academic programme based on an enhanced version of the English National Curriculum, suitably adapted for our international student body. Our academic programme runs in conjunction with a comprehensive co-curricular programme that provides a wealth of artistic, sporting, and cultural opportunities for our students to engage in – both in Yangon and across the Dulwich College International family of schools.
Our shared ethos is a simple one: our students come first. Above all else, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all the students in our care and expect our staff and visitors to place this priority at the heart of all that they do. We believe in nurturing well-rounded young people who are considerate, passionate and ready to embrace the opportunities before them. We accomplish this by placing equal emphasis on our students’ intellectual and personal development. We teach our students how to learn and think independently, using our experience as educators to nurture their different interests and learning styles.
As a parent of students at Dulwich College Yangon, I am always delighted to meet other parents and their children to share the sense of excitement that is building around our schools here in Yangon. Please do not hesitate to contact either me or our admissions team to learn more about our campuses at the College.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Dulwich College Yangon, Pun Hlaing campus. We are proud of our heritage and our commitment to Myanmar at such an exciting time and very pleased to be members of the community in Yangon.
I hope that the website will give you an insight into the vibrant and exciting school we are developing here.
The school is the foremost British Curriculum international school in Yangon with a strong academic base and excellent facilities. We aspire to become the best international school in Myanmar and then to rank amongst the top international schools worldwide as part of the Dulwich College International family.
We are an ambitious school and my team and I firmly believe that there is no limit to the potential of our students. Through our academic programmes, focus on student safety and well-being and our wide-ranging and exciting co-curricular offer, Dulwich College Pun Hlaing puts students first and at the heart of everything we do.
Our exciting and engaging inquiry-led curriculum is based upon the latest version of the UK National Curriculum 2014. We use the highly regarded UK Early Years Foundation Stage strategy to ensure the youngest children develop their full potential and reference the full UK National Curriculum from Year 1. Our students are regularly assessed against the requirements of this rigorous academic programme to ensure that they are on track.
Alongside our academic program we have a well-developed co-curricular program of sports, science, music and art. Our school is renowned for its musical and dramatic productions, which are often the talk of the town! We insist on commitment, teamwork and sportsmanship.
We provide outstanding opportunities that develop every aspect of our students’ interest and ability. We aim to develop a lifelong love of learning and to encourage every child to discover and nurture their passions within a Global context. We ensure that they are fully prepared for the next stage of their education and ready to 'Graduate Worldwise'.
Having Early Years, Junior School and Senior School on the same campus has enabled us to develop an excellent transition program enabling students to make a seamless and highly successful move to high school and beyond. Our excellent links with top universities around the World and our highly qualified academic counsellors support Dulwich students and their families in planning the right next step.
Whilst we are proud of our rigorous British academic foundations, we are also proud to be based here in Myanmar with its wealth of culture and tradition. We take every opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge our location and the heritage of our many international families.
Our children say that they are proud of their school and that they love coming in every day. They are keen and willing learners, well behaved and focused on achieving great things here.
Our parents tell us that they enjoy the warm welcome they get at Dulwich College Yangon, Pun Hlaing campus, the positive and collaborative relationship they have with staff and the fact that the school has a real sense of community. They say it really feels as if they are part of ‘The Dulwich family’. We are very proud of this relationship as we know that together we can ensure a fantastic future for the children here.
This website can really only offer a glimpse of life here at Dulwich College Pun Hlaing, but we hope that it will be sufficient to encourage you to come and visit us.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
