Our school building is on the shared campus with our sister school, Dulwich College Suzhou, in Suzhou Industrial Park. Through co-curricular activities, competitions and social functions, our students have many opportunities to meet international students and learn about different cultures.
Our site provides our students with an excellent environment for learning and access to a wide range of educational resources. It is more than four times the size of the original campus shared with Suzhou High School. The new purpose-built building offers 16,959 square metres of space. Each room is equipped with smart technology, as well as central air and filtration systems. The 56 classrooms include custom designed science labs, a library, a black box theatre, music practice rooms, sport fields, a roof garden, and a medical centre.
Our dining hall prepares four meals daily and our coffee shop offers sandwiches and snacks throughout the school day. A Nutrition Committee works with our caterers to ensure healthy and nutritious options are available to all students and staff.
With students from 18 provinces and 48 municipalities and administrative regions across China, Boarding at DHSZ provides safe and homely accommodation for over 70% of our students. We have three boarding houses on and off-campus with modern comfortable rooms that sleep 2-4 students. Each floor is supervised by a mixture of expatriate and Chinese boarding staff who live full-time in boarding. The Head of Boarding and House Parents have apartments within boarding and ensure that students are adequately supervised and cared for. There is also a daytime medical center on-campus.
We have a mixture of weekly boarders who go home at the weekend, and termly boarders who live further from school and go home during the holidays. There is a weekend activity programme for our termly boarders comprising trips in an out of Suzhou throughout the year. There are two hours of supervised study time each evening, Sunday to Thursday, and this provides students the opportunity to complete homework and prepare for classes in a quiet, distraction free environment. We regularly collect feedback from our boarders and they consistently report high satisfaction with boarding scores and tend to do better academically than our day students.
