Naughty Corner

Dulwich College, Shanghai

In a “precipitous fall from grace,” to quote his lawyer, former principal of Dulwich College Shanghai, Dominic Charnock has been sentenced to 11 months in a Singapore jail for possession of the drug methamphetamine, or crystal meth, as it is known to fans of Breaking Bad.

When arrested, Charnock was working as a curriculum developer for Dulwich College Management International Limited. The company is registered in the Cayman islands, according to Dato Capital Cayman Islands ( It currently runs Dulwich schools in Asia, licensing the name and intellectual property of Dulwich College from Dulwich College Overseas Enterprises, a trading company wholly-owned by Dulwich College London, according to the 2018 Financial Statement on the website of the 400 year-old London public school.

So that’s crystal clear – as is the fact that the Singapore police didn’t say when they raided Charnock’s home.
