We are very aware of the enormous opportunities that are available to us being based in Guangzhou. We are at the heart of China, a rapidly transforming nation with a growing influence on the world at large. We recognise that an understanding of Chinese culture and a command of Mandarin will be invaluable assets for the future.

In the Primary School, daily Mandarin lessons are complemented by a rich programme of activities, educational trips and whole school events that take place throughout the school year. 

The school’s Advanced Chinese Programme provides pupils who qualify with the opportunity to pursue Mandarin studies to a higher level and aim for a native level of spoken and written Mandarin. There is also a Chinese Programme for those students who are new to the language. All Year 6 students will also have the opportunity to have taster lessons in both French and Spanish.

In our Secondary School, all students in Years 7 to 13 have the opportunity to study two languages from beginners level up to A2 level. Students can choose from Mandarin, French, German or Spanish.

A German Home Language Programme also operates in the school. This programme is taught by a native German teacher and allows German speakers to pursue their language studies as well as follow the school’s curriculum.
