Region: Far East and South East Asia
School Curriculum: UK and Integrated Chinese Curriculum
Experience: 2+ years

School Overview: This school opened in August 2015, and will eventually grow to accommodate 1800 students aged 3-18. This school not only benefits from being part of a successful network of Schools in China (Ningbo, Beijing & Qingdao), but also from its strong relationship with its partner school in the UK.

The curriculum allows students to access a broad and balanced learning experience - one in which tradition meets creativity, and East meets West.
