From our Director of School

I am delighted to introduce you to our outstanding school where students love learning and develop deep understanding. We are a happy and hardworking community of people who are optimistic and ambitious for the future.

We are uncompromising in our commitment to academic standards, personal integrity and the development of a sense of responsibility in a supportive, adult environment. It is our highest priority that our students are academically challenged and that they achieve excellent grades with the expert teaching and the careful support and guidance of our professional and well-qualified teachers. We also ensure that our students develop the high levels of proficiency in English they will need to succeed in their studies.

Apart from the range of academic subjects we offer, we have a co-curricular programme that offers students an impressive variety of activities through which to develop their interests and skills. We are committed to the development of our students into responsible, ethical, polite and considerate citizens who are able to make positive and meaningful contributions to their communities and the society in which they will live as adults.

Our students’ well-being is very important to us and our pastoral programme is designed to equip our students with good coping strategies and with the social skills they will need to live well in the world outside school. In today’s quickly changing world, the characteristics of adaptability, confidence, imaginative problem solving, perseverance, and the ability to learn quickly are essential for success. Our teaching and pastoral programmes are also supported by a strong commitment to safeguarding and child protection which is founded on our value that students come first and is embedded in all that we do.

We have a reputation with prestigious colleges and universities around the world for the excellent college and career counselling we offer every one of our students for the duration of our programme. We are confident that the knowledge and experience of our college counselling team gives our students a great advantage in securing acceptances to their best-fit university.

In brief, we ensure not only that our students go onto their chosen colleges and universities, but also that they have acquired the life skills and the confidence they will need to be successful and well-adjusted young adults and outstanding scholars when they get to university.

I look forward to welcoming you to Dulwich International High School Suzhou.
