Welcoming our newest school in China: NAS Beijing Shunyi - NAS Shunyi opening

Today we’re proud to announce the grand opening of NAS Beijing Shunyi, a bilingual boarding school in China teaching students aged 6 to 18 years the best of both eastern and western education. The school will have capacity to educate 1,440 students, with a total of 484 boarding places, and will be led by Co-Principals Helena Xin and Julie Terry.

These learning environments include an indoor swimming pool, 400-meter outdoor sports field, a massive theatre, STEAM facilities, a learning resource centre, and more. The school also provides boarding services for students in Grade 4 and above. Today, the teachers were delighted to see these spaces filled with eager students!

NAS Beijing Shunyi’s international teachers — hired from countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa — all have experience teaching non-native English students, with an average teaching experience of 10 years. The school’s national teachers from China are all bilingual and fluent in using English while teaching. Most of the Chinese teachers have a master's degree or above and have experience teaching international students.


Founding parent Ms Zhang said: “Choosing a school is like choosing a friend. The most important thing is to be comfortable with each other. Behind this comfort is the fit of each other's values and mutual trust and appreciation. Children learn and grow in an environment where they are respected and loved, often reaching their fullest potential and becoming a person capable of feeling and creating happiness. I believe that the future success of NAS will be created by us, working together.”


NAS Beijing Shunyi’s curriculum is based on the Chinese national nine-year compulsory education curriculum and enriched with international approaches and modern teaching methods. The school makes use of unique international resources to provide a consistent and quality 12-year bilingual education for students aged 6-18.


With small class sizes and low student to teacher ratios, this results in a highly personalised learning experience for every student.
