A teach abroad experience that brings East and West historical legacies together! Established in 2010, Dulwich International High School Zhuhai (Dulwich Zhuhai) carries the legacy of its founding school, Dulwich College London, one of the UK’s oldest independent schools, founded in 1619.

Zhuhai, internationally renowned as the hometown of Yung Wing, the first Chinese student to study and graduate from a university abroad, Yale University in 1854, who also pioneered the pathway for Chinese to study abroad. The city is located in the heart of the Guangdong - Hong Kong – Macau Greater Bay Area, known as ‘the GBA,’ an area that is rich in both historical and modern culture and provides easy access to domestic and international travel by ferry, high-speed train or airplane. The subtropical climate offers overseas teachers a beautiful experience of mild temperatures, palm trees, and tropical flowers flourishing year-round. In addition, the modern and vigorous community explores and enjoys the wide selection of local and international delicacies the city has to offer.

Dulwich Zhuhai’s 19,600-square-metre campus was designed to integrate the beauty of the traditional Lingnan architecture of Southern China and the iconic Dulwich-style British brick buildings, thus reflecting the school’s motto: Detur Pons Mundo (Building Bridges to the World). Modern facilities and abundant outdoor spaces provide a wide range of learning environments for students, encouraging creativity and teamwork. The green environment contributes to the well-being of the community while providing a continual learning opportunity for everyone to work towards a sustainable future.
