Dulwich International High School Zhuhai

Dulwich International High School Zhuhai (DHZH) seeks an outstanding and inspirational educator as a Maths Teacher starting from August 2020. This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference in our fast growing school in Zhuhai, one of China’s most desirable cities to live in.

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 makes it a delight to teach them. The majority of our 300+ students are PRC nationals who will pursue their university 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.

We are one of a family of schools owned and operated by Dulwich College International (DCI), based in Shanghai. DCI was founded in 2003, with full approval and authority from Dulwich College London and currently owns 11 schools in China, Seoul, Singapore and Myanmar. Being part of a group of schools offers our teachers and students many opportunities for connections and professional development outside the school as well.

We are an expanding school, currently in our seventh year of operation. We opened in September 2010 in within the beautiful grounds of the prestigious Yung Wing School and enjoy a number of shared facilities.  Our strong connections with both Dulwich College London and Yung Wing School allow us to truly claim 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.

In line with the Dulwich College educational philosophy, we offer a holistic approach to the education of our high performing students, which is centred on a rigorous and advanced academic programme based around the UK’s University of Cambridge International Examinations iGCSE and A-level qualification. In addition, we run an extensive co-curricular activities programme that supports students in developing their teamwork, leadership and creativity skills.

Zhuhai

Zhuhai is one of several Special Economic Zones in mainland China and is experiencing considerable development. Macau lies only minutes away and a one hour ferry journey will take you to Hong Kong. Zhuhai is well positioned for flights into China and South East Asia. 

Staff can choose their own accommodation within the beautiful surroundings of the Huafa New Town area which is close to the College and offers modern accommodation of an extremely high standard. Besides small class sizes and highly motivated students, we also offer a very competitive package including flight allowance, accommodation, domestic allowance, shipping and medical cover.
