New Head of DUCKS Appointment

We are delighted to be able to inform our community that Shirley Wan will be the new Head of DUCKS commencing 3 February 2020. Shirley was the outstanding candidate amongst a number of strong external applicants and is thoroughly deserving of this appointment. Dulwich College Suzhou look forward to her joining the College Leadership Team following Tom Hughes’ move to Guangzhou after Chinese New Year.

Shirley Wan is currently the Deputy Head of DUCKS at Dulwich College Suzhou. Prior to joining the College three years ago, Ms Wan was KS1 Leader at Dulwich College Beijing for four years. She describes herself as leading “an engaging environment that facilitates children’s learning through peer collaboration, and independent thought through self-discovery”. As Deputy Head of DUCKS Ms Wan is proud of having a record of implementing positive changes for students. She holds a BA with Honours from the University of Central Lancashire, a PGCE from St Martin’s College, Cumbria, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management in Education from Sheffield Hallam University. Ms Wan is thrilled to be taking on this role. Her philosophy on educating children, her proven track record of delivering excellence and her commitment to our children shone through.

Please join us in congratulating Shirley and we look forward to her contribution as Head of DUCKS from February 2020.
