RDFZ King’s College School has been formed through partnership between the prestigious King’s College School, Wimbledon, the highly successful Chinese education group, Dipont Education and The High School Affiliated to Renmin University (RDFZ), one of China’s leading schools. Opened in September 2018, RDFZ King’s currently has almost 1500 students on roll and will grow to serve over 3,000 students from 3 to 18 years of age.

English language development across primary and middle years is one of the most important areas of focus in the school's development plan and a number of new positions have been created as a result.

About the School

RDFZ King’s represents a new standard of bilingual education in China. It provides for both local and international students via an innovative model that combines Chinese and western approaches to learning and academic excellence, in the context of first-rate pastoral support and opportunities to excel outside the classroom. Our goal is to graduate confident, articulate young people with a broad set of life skills who will go on to attend universities across the world.

The facilities at RDFZ King's College Hangzhou are outstanding and our world-class campus includes wonderful teaching and recreational spaces, numerous and well-equipped laboratories, 800-seat theatre, a 50-metre swimming pool and excellent sports facilities. The school is located on an idyllic lakeside site in the Yuhang District of Hangzhou.

About Hangzhou

It is also the designated city for the development of education and technology in China. Shanghai can be accessed within one hour by high-speed train.

Yuhang District has experienced significant growth and development and is home to the technology giant Alibaba and more than 10,000 high-tech businesses, hotels, shops and restaurants.

About the Role

Regardless of a child’s age or Key Stage, we focus on values. Pupils in our international school are taught about the importance of community, friendship, doing their best for themselves and others, and caring for their environment. This helps ensure that they work together supportively and look out for one another.

As pupils progress to Key Stage 3, they enter the international secondary school where they will continue to study the English National Curriculum with the addition of Mandarin. We also increase the amount of specialist teaching to ensure that students are stretched and challenged by experts in their subjects.

At high school level,  IGCSE English (Second Language) is undertaken by all students. At present, no students undertake A Level English but we will be introducing the IBDP in 2022 and English Language B will be offered.

Applications are invited from candidates with:

• Significant experience teaching English at Key Stages 3 and 4, ideally with experience in IGCSE

• The ability to work collaboratively and cross-culturally and to contribute to the development of an outstanding school

This exciting and challenging role commands a very attractive salary and benefits package. In addition to a highly competitive salary, benefits include: high-quality housing, bonus scheme, annual return airfare and medical insurance for employee plus dependents. Full tuition support will be provided for a successful applicant with school-age children. The position will be offered on an initial three-year contract term with the opportunity to renew thereafter.
