This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in our fast-growing school in Suzhou, one of China’s most vibrant cities. At DCSZ children in DUCKS are aged 2-6.

DCSZ was the third Dulwich College to open in China. The College has grown to cater for more than 1000 students aged 2 – 18 and has an enviable reputation in this new First Tier City that ranks as having the 6th highest GDP in China and a population around 14 million.

Record breaking IB results in 2018 placed the College as the highest scoring international IB school in mainland China with an average point score of 38.8. Our College offers the English Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, the English National Curriculum, International GCSEs and the IB Diploma. Our students achieved an IGCSE A* / A average of over 70% in 2018. In 2019 the graduating class IB average was 36.2, significantly above the world average of 29.2.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate Inspection of October 2016 awarded the highest grade possible, Excellent, for every aspect of the life of the College. This is a rare achievement and we are the only school in Suzhou to have this accolade. The school is also accredited by CIS, WASC and NCCT, and currently working towards its five-year CIS re-accreditation.
