We follow the English National Curriculum, used by over 30,000 schools in the UK and overseas. This brings reassurance to parents and stability to students - important considerations when moving between countries.
We all benefit from the British Education system's rigorous training for teachers, its reliable assessment system and its rich supply of books and other resources. It is a standardised programme and is delivered here in Beijing the same way as any British School worldwide. By choosing a British education for your son or daughter, you can ensure continuity in their education anywhere in the world. All children are taught in mixed ability classes, with children of the same age. Children may be taught English, Maths or other core subjects in smaller groups if we consider support is needed.
We start in the Primary School with Early Years, progressing through Key Stages 1 and 2, following a well planned and tested programme of study in a range of subjects. Class teachers are familiar with British education and with our international environment.
In the Secondary School, specialist teaching programmes in Key Stages 3 and 4 develop deeper understanding across the arts, humanities, languages and sciences. Aged 16, students sit examinations in up to ten subjects, earning IGCSE qualifications that are recognised worldwide.
For their last two years, our students study for A-levels, valued by universities and colleges around the world as ideal preparation for further study. The A-levels detailed focus makes it ideal for our students, whose experiences and skills mark them out as today’s global citizens and tomorrow’s global leaders.
British qualified staff deliver the English National Curriculum supported in most instances by a native English speaking Teacher's Assistant.
