  • I’m applying from overseas and my child can’t attend BSG’s assessment. What should we do?

    No problem. Parents applying from overseas can send copies of their child’s latest academic transcripts (typically, only for children aged 6 or above). Depending on the information provided, BSG will reply with three possible outcomes:

    • In very exceptional circumstances, BSG accepts the child unconditionally. This is mainly limited to native English speakers with outstanding academic transcripts or references, normally from school with the English National Curriculum.
    • BSG sends an online link for the assessment. The child will sit in a controlled environment, either at their current school or at home. BSG may grant an admission offer based on the test results. 
  • Can my child enrol at BSG throughout the academic year?
    Yes, we accept students any time. We give special attention to new children to ensure they feel welcomed and integrated into their class.
  • Is the curriculum taught at BSG recognised by other international schools and universities?
    Yes, BSG follows the English National Curriculum, as delivered by top UK independent schools. In consideration of our location within China, we’ve modified the curriculum slightly, also in respect to the international nature of our students. Students attending our school will have their qualifications recognised and accepted by other reputable British and international schools as well as universities worldwide.

    BSG is a member of the Nord Anglia Education family of international schools and an active member of reputable international school associations, such as COBIS (Council of British International Schools) and CIS (Council of International Schools). BSG is also fully licensed by the Chinese Ministry of Education. 

    Additionally, our SAT, IGCSE, and A-Level examinations are fully recognised and accredited by the same Examination Boards as other top UK private schools – both in the UK and internationally. These Examination Boards include the Cambridge University International Examination Board (CIE) and Edexcel.
  • My child has very limited English. Can we still apply to BSG?
    Yes, we accept students with English as an Additional Language (EAL) needs, as we offer a strong EAL program.

    The demands of the level of English increases at BSG with the age of the child – typically being less demanding during Early Years and more demanding as students move into the Secondary year groups. We become more selective from Year 10 and above, as the curriculum requires a strong English level. However, we still can support students with EAL needs, even at the time of preparing for IGCSEs.
  • How many hours of instruction in Mandarin do you offer each week?

    BSG is committed to providing a strong Mandarin programme within the time constraints we have from the English National Curriculum.

    We differentiate our Mandarin classes by levels of ability:

    • Years 1–3 receive four 40-minute lessons per week 
    • Years 4–6 receive three hours per week
    • Secondary school students may opt to study another language in place of Chinese.
