RDFZ King’s College School Hangzhou is one of two school development projects in China initiated through a partnership between Dipont Education, and the prestigious King’s College School, Wimbledon. A third partner in Hangzhou is The High School Affiliated to Renmin University of China (RDFZ), one of China’s leading schools.

About the School

RDFZ King’s represents a new standard of bilingual education in China. It provides for both local and international students via an innovative model that combines Chinese and western approaches to learning and academic excellence, in the context of first-rate pastoral support and opportunities to excel outside the classroom. Our goal is to graduate confident, articulate young people with a broad set of life skills who will go on to attend universities across the world.

The facilities at RDFZ King's College Hangzhou are outstanding and our world-class campus includes wonderful teaching and recreational spaces, numerous and well-equipped laboratories, 800-seat theatre, a 50-metre swimming pool and excellent sports facilities. The school is located on an idyllic lakeside site in the Yuhang District of Hangzhou.

High school

The high school – or International Curriculum Centre – caters for more than 300 Grade 9 to 12 students. The centre uses an enhanced English National Curriculum where students study externally assessed International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations at the end of Grade 10. Grade 11 and 12 students work towards the UK Advanced Level (A-level) qualifications, awarded by Cambridge Assessment International Examinations (CAIE). Alongside these programmes of study, various Chinese subjects are also integrated to develop local cultural understanding as well as a global perspective. This year the school began offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP).

The high school offers a broad range of co-curricular activities to develop each pupil’s skills, knowledge, interests and enjoyment of different areas in an environment where they feel safe, valued and have a strong sense of belonging. There are multiple opportunities available to students in the key areas of sport, expressive arts, community service and further academic enrichment. In particular, student-led clubs offer students great opportunities to fulfil their enthusiasm and develop their leadership and teamwork.
