About Role

Dulwich College International (DCI) recognizes that exceptional and inspirational teachers are our most valuable resource in providing our students with an excellent international education. Dulwich teachers are ambitious for their students’ learning and put students first in everything they do. They have the highest aspirations for their students’ achievement and development, both in the classroom and through the many extra-curricular activities on offer. Our teachers actively promote the College’s Mission and Vision through their enthusiastic and full participation in College life and their supportive engagement with students, colleagues and parents. A clear focus on learning is the foundation stone for DCI’s six core teacher standards which guide and inform our work with our young people across each age range and developmental phase. They are:

1. Knowing students and how they learn

2. Plan for and implement effective learning and teaching

3. Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning and progress

4. Develop supportive and safe learning environments

5. Demonstrate International- mindedness and Global Citizenship

6. Engage Professionally in Learning and with the Community

Our School

Dulwich International High School Zhuhai (DHZH) is a selective, English-medium, co-educational four-year high school. Our students are highly motivated and learning focused which provides an outstanding school climate to work in. The majority of our almost 400 students are PRC nationals who will pursue their tertiary studies at excellent universities and colleges outside China. To this end, our students opt out of the Chinese education system at the end of junior middle school to follow a curriculum leading to IGCSEs and A Levels.

DHZH is currently in our thirteenth year of operation and moved to an 800 seat purpose built campus on Hengqin Island in 2021. We opened in September 2010 within the beautiful grounds of the prestigious Yung Wing School in Zhuhai. The links with both Dulwich College London and Yung Wing School allow us to live the ideal that our school is a bridge between the educational traditions of East and West and it is this unique distinction that sets us apart from our competitors.

Zhuhai is one of several Special Economic Zones in mainland China and is experiencing considerable development including Hengqin Island, which is part of an Education and Technology hub in South China’s Greater Bay Area. Macau lies only minutes away and a one-hour ferry journey or bus ride on the new Zhuhai-Macau bridge will take you to Hong Kong.

Zhuhai is well positioned for flights into China and South East Asia and its high standard of living and warm temperate climate make it an excellent place to pursue an international teaching career.
