Teachanywhere is delighted to once again be supporting Dulwich College International with their recruitment campaign for educators for the next academic year. Dulwich College International is a global family of schools providing a dynamic and innovative international curriculum, world-class facilities and an outstanding faculty from around the world.

The group was founded in partnership with Dulwich College, a leading independent school in the UK. Since Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong opened its doors in 2003, enrolment at Dulwich College International schools has grown to over 10,000 students hailing from more than 60 countries. The group now comprises ten schools in seven cities across Asia and three sister schools, Dehong International Chinese Schools, in Shanghai, Beijing, and Xi'an.

Dehong Beijing is a sister school to the highly regarded Dulwich College International schools. Dehong provides a bi-lingual, bi-cultural education for Chinese students. A progressive approach incorporates both the academically rigorous Chinese national curriculum and inquiry-based English learning, building international mindedness with a strong focus on well-being and commitment to service and sustainability. Being part of a Dehong school is a culturally immersive experience paired with the diverse opportunities, for both students and staff, accessed through sister schools in the established Dulwich College International network. The Beijing campus provides first-class facilities integrating collaborative learning spaces with areas dedicated to performing arts, sports, STEAM and innovation. A Grade 1-12 School, with capacity for 6-forms of entry, the campus is designed for 1,800 students. Boarding houses will enable over 400 students to reside within the campus. The campus is located in the Grassetown residential development, in Tongzhou District of north Beijing.
