On Friday 5th May, Mr Mike Embley, Nord Anglia Education’s CEO for China, led a delegation of senior staff from the British School of Guangzhou as they joined executives from Leatop Real Estate Investment Co., Ltd. for a contract signing ceremony to officially launch cooperation between the two organisations that will facilitate development of BSG’s new Maogeng Campus.
Designed specifically for younger students and located close to Guangzhou’s central business district, the new purpose-built campus will be a welcome addition to current facilities when it opens in August 2020. It will feature a large auditorium, indoor play areas and excellent sports facilities that will include a dedicated sports hall, indoor swimming pool and a spacious outdoor playing field.
Friday's signing ceremony was witnessed by representatives from both the Chinese and British governments, who welcomed the planned growth of the British School within Guangzhou. Mr Embley commented, ‘The past 10 years has seen the British School grow into one of South China’s largest international school communities. As we plan for future growth, I can not think of a better partner for Nord Anglia Education to have in Guangdong and would like to thank Leatop for their vision and commitment to education.’ #BeAmbitious
