Primary School

Our Primary School follows Xiehe’s Pioneer Curriculum (PC) informed by the best of Chinese and Western pedagogies. We develop life-long learners with integrity, a solid academic foundation and strong English ability, as well as creating new values on the basis of an understanding of the national culture. We provide high quality education that is beyond just academics to develop their character as unique students who contribute in meaningful and positive ways to our global society.

By providing traditional Chinese subject-centered learning experiences and Western enquiry-based projects, our Pioneer Curriculum (PC) nourishes every student with a love for learning, questioning and problem solving. Our teaching approach develops not only students’ academics, but also their abilities and strengths to reach their full potential.

After graduation, students can follow one of four pathways: continue into our secondary curriculum, attend a local secondary school, other international school, or even study abroad.

Middle School

Our Middle School offers a unique but challenging curriculum that will give students all they need to be successful in their education. The curriculum combines the Chinese elements needed for the Zhongkao tests and the International studies needed for the IGCSE courses. This integrated and collaborative approach to learning is the perfect preparation for students and will give them all they need to access higher education anywhere in the world. The majority of their lessons will be taught in English by expert International teachers or co-taught by Chinese and Western staff.

 

The unique elements of this curriculum enable children to:

  • Develop the skills of enquiry and critical thinking to learn and develop quicker.
  • Become creative thinkers with the self-discipline to maximize their learning.
  • Become collaborative team workers with the leadership skills to meet the challenges of the world tomorrow.

High School

 

We have created an exceptional opportunity for students with our High School programme. To give each student the best possible chance in life we have developed pathways for students to choose from. If a student wishes to continue their education in North America,we offer the Advanced Placement (AP) courses which gives them access to American universities. If the UK, Europe or other Commonwealth nation is a preferred destination then we also offer a wide variety of A level courses.

 

We will also prepare students for the TOEFL and SAT tests, which will further enhance their chances of gaining a place in the top Universities around the world. As each student begins to plan for and prepare their University applications we will ensure that each one is given specialized and professional counseling so that their application is as good as it can be.
