School Overview: An outstanding opportunity to work with a brand new highly prestigious school opening in August 2019, linked to a top UK school. This will grow to be a K-12 school located in the Nanshan area of Shenzhen, and will be a modern school in a modern city, but built on strong historical, educational roots. Although this will be a large school, it will also benefit from being very much a community. This will be achieved by providing top quality boarding facilities for 300 boys and girls and a substantial number of staff apartments on site. The Pre-Prep School, is a bilingual school and is targeted to open in August 2019 in bespoke accommodation. The rest of the School (covering ages 6-18) is scheduled to open in September 2020. Teaching and learning will take place in state-of-the-art spaces comprising a mixture of traditional classrooms an exciting breakout research or maker-spaces. Teaching groups will be a maximum of 22 for the younger years, but smaller for the more specialist education required at the highest level. The curriculum will specialise in an all-round STEAM education with Science, Technology and the Arts (visual art, music, drama, dance, etc.) in equal measure. Robotics, space and the environment will feature heavily as they look to recognise the strengths of modern day Shenzhen. The main rooftop library and the Senior School Study Centre will be a wonderful attraction that will draw people to the School, making research an enjoyable activity. There will be extensive indoor sporting and performing facilities, and an outside running track. Sport, music and drama will feature strongly in the life of students.
