The Curriculum

Our curriculum is devised and delivered to prepare pupils for the leading British independent senior schools. Our academic programme is based on the best of both British and Chinese pedagogy systems and subjects are taught in both English and Chinese to ensure children master vocabulary in both languages.

Games & the Arts

We place a big emphasis on physical education for health & fitness and the arts for cultural education. There is a 680m2 sports hall (unusual for a central London school) and a magnificent roof terrace where the children can run and play.

Pastoral Care

From the school’s 2018 Ofsted report: ‘The school’s work to promote children’s personal development and welfare is outstanding. All staff know children and their families well and are highly effective at meeting children’s care and welfare needs.’

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

The school was founded on the idea that a progressive educational model can be combined with Mandarin immersion to create a vibrant, innovative school where children will thrive. It provides children with a double-first – a first-class prep school education coupled with the first bilingual experience – a life-changing opportunity to engage with and succeed in an interconnected  21st-century world.

Outstanding Characteristics

The first Prep School in the United Kingdom to offer a dual-language English-Chinese education from ages 3–11, we provide children with a traditional prep school education combined with rigorous Mandarin immersion. A ‘unique and inspirational school’ and rated ‘Outstanding’ in all areas in our 2018 Ofsted inspection.
