Dulwich College Suzhou educates children from age 2 to 18. The primary teaching language is English, with a Dual Language approach in Mandarin and English in DUCKS.
Children up to age 5 follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, and from Year 1 to Year 9, they begin the National Curriculum of England and Wales, which is enhanced to meet the needs of our international student body. In Year 10 they begin the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education), a rigorous two-year course that requires students to take a broad range of subjects covering maths and sciences, English and foreign languages, and the humanities. It culminates in exams at the end of Year 11, and prepares students well for the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) starting in Year 12.
Dulwich College Suzhou's approach to learning nurtures confidence and intellectual curiosity in our students, preparing them for success in further education and life beyond. We offer a holistic education founded on scholarship and complemented by rewarding co-curricular programmes. Our network of schools has partnerships with leading universities and organisations to bring unique learning experiences to our students.
This is a for profit school, note again, for profit school. I attended this school for 12th and 13th year and received an IB diploma. The teachers are great and care about the students, but when I went there (class of 2014) the headmaster John Todd was very aloof in all my interactions with him and I could tell he only cared about how my performance would look on marketing materials. This man actually confronted one of my school mates about how they gave him a bad review during their interview process with him as heads of the student body, then proceeded to criticize her for it. In my interactions with other admin staff from their separate non-school headquarters in Shanghai I always walked away with a bad taste in my mouth, like all they cared about was what my score on the IB exam would be and nothing else. No interest in the individual student at all. Also every year I went there they increased the price of tuition.
I think most of my issue with this school was how some in the administration seemed like they were actually more in it for money than caring about the students. I hope this is no longer true and will say I received a quality education here and got into several highly ranked engineering schools.
