School Overview: Opening in 2019, in partnership with a leading UK-based day school that was shortlisted for this year's TES Independent School of the Year award, this brand new international school will be a co-educational boarding school for Chinese students aged 2 to 18. As a bilingual school it will meet the requirements of the Chinese curriculum in Grades 1 to 9 and progress on to the IGCSE and A-level programme. "East-meets-West" is a strong theme in the school's philosophy for education and the curriculum will reflect the coming together of Chinese and British curricula and pedagogical approaches. The vision is to develop responsible global citizens with a strong sense of their cultural heritage, fully prepared for the competitive marketplace they will join as young adults. The school will strive to empower students to be creative and innovative leaders and will provide an academic education that open doors of opportunity and extra-curricular experiences to inspire and create pathways to future success.

The school will be housed on an impressive 25-acre site in Nanjing, and will grow organically to reach its full capacity of 2,400 students by the seventh year of operation. The campus has been designed by distinguished British architectural firm with considerable experience in designing first-class international school campuses in China. Reminiscent of British independent schools, the school is built around courtyards and quadrangles. Around these open spaces, will be a wide range of world-class educational and sporting facilities to enable students to pursue a diverse range of interests. Ample space has been given to providing art, design, drama and music studios, the prepossessing 800-seater theatre being the first building visible to visitors of the school. Throughout the school there are sporting facilities that will include an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool, a multi-purpose sports hall, a number of outdoor sports pitches and a 400-metre running track. The school will have a dedicated STEM and science hub with access to the latest technology and a range of well-resourced laboratories to support the delivery of a personalised, flexible and relevant curriculum.
