We love learning, and we work hard to ensure that our students enjoy their time at school. In the Middle School, the curriculum is based on the Chinese National Curriculum and delivered using a Perse Pedagogy Approach. In the High School, we combine the renowned Cambridge IGCSE and A Level curriculum with expert university guidance, The Perse Plus programme of academic extension, and a diverse co-curricular programme including sport, music, drama, art, exploration and debating.
Welcome to The Perse School Suzhou. I am Catherine Cooke, and it is an honour to be the Principal of this warm and friendly school in the heart of Suzhou. We have joined The Perse family of schools and we share our vision with The Perse School Cambridge, to love learning and strive for the greater good.
I believe that accountability and empowerment in a supportive holistic environment are the keys to success. And our teachers develop that lifelong love of learning with our students by challenging them to think for themselves, solve problems and work collaboratively. Our students become confident, caring, independent learners with the skills and attributes required for further study overseas.
—— Catherine Cooke, Principal of The Perse School Suzhou
