Choosing between an International or Bilingual school experience first depends on what type of passport your child holds. Our International schools are open to anyone holding an International passport (non-Chinese) and our Bilingual schools are open to both Chinese national and International passport holders.
If your child is legible for both, the next decision is around curriculum. Our International schools offer pure British and/or International Baccalaureate (IB), and our bilingual programme is based on the Chinese K-12 National curriculum, blended with globally respected international teaching pedagogy and education resources. Whilst Mandarin and English are taught in both types of school, our bilingual schools offer full dual language instruction.
