Our global family of schools continues to grow, with two brand-new schools in China set to officially open their doors to students on 1 September 2020 for the start of the new academic year. We are proud to say that this brings our total number of schools to 68, located across 29 countries around the world.
Our new schools are Nord Anglia School Guangzhou, Panyu and Nord Anglia School Jiaxing and they will join our six existing China Bilingual schools. Welcoming hundreds of new students this September, the schools will educate more than 3,500 students at full capacity.
Andrew Fitzmaurice, Chief Executive Officer, Nord Anglia Education, said: “Our two new bilingual schools signify the next stage in Nord Anglia’s proud history as China’s longest standing international education provider. Our new students in China, like all Nord Anglia Education students, will have access to unforgettable, world-class learning opportunities as part of our global family.”
