The house system is a traditional feature of schools in England. In Dulwich College London, the house system was originally introduced in 1919. Almost 100 years later, Dulwich International High School Suzhou continues to carry on this fine tradition. All staff and students are placed into one of our four Houses when they join. The system is similar to the four houses of Hogwarts of Harry Potter fame!
Students in each house are actively participating in house activities, and expressing themselves freely

Two freshmen shared their feelings about the first week of school:
Dulwich, this place I have been dreaming of for many years, I finally came here. Although I have been coming to such an English environment from various channels for many years, it is inevitable that I am not used to it. However, the teachers here are very patient and can help us quickly integrate into a new life. Although it was only a short week, I learned a lot of knowledge and experienced many courses that I had never learned before. The new students who come to Dulwich are also very friendly and help each other. I am looking forward to the future life in Dulwich.
I'm here with great expectations of Dulwich, because I've adapted to all English life before, and now I'm quickly integrated into this big family. I welcome new courses and classmates with a new look. During this week, I learned a lot of new knowledge and the teachers were friendly. The dormitory is also great and harmonious.
After a week of campus life, the freshmen experienced the colorful campus culture in Dulwich International High School Suzhou. In Dulwich, students can not only achieve excellent academic results, but also fully develop their interests, and eventually grow into outstanding individuals with enthusiasm and motivation and enter the world's top universities for further study.
