English schools in China
The College opened its doors to its first students in August 2007 on a brand new campus on the eastern side of Suzhou. We currently cater for students from Reception to Year 8 (ages 4 to 12).The College will expand further for the Academic Year 2008-9 to include a Kindergarten and Year 9. The range of ages that we will then cater for will be from ages 2 to 14.
The College offers a friendly, intimate and child-centred learning environment. Your child is placed at the very centre of the learning process and receives a broad and balanced education.
The College follows an adapted form of the English National Curriculum, which enjoys an excellent reputation throughout the world. The emphasis is on how to learn, rather than just factual knowledge, and a great deal of importance is placed on the students' ability to work independently and to develop their own thinking.
In addition to the obvious benefits of promoting fitness and a healthy lifestyle, involvement in sports is one of the best ways to develop social, team and leadership skills. At the College students have a chance to experiment and to discover where their skills lie by trying their hand at a variety of sports. Our commitment is to the provision of a large range of sports allied with high levels of professional coaching.
