ACADEMIC RESULTS

Thanks to the dedication of both pupils and teaching staff, we are proud to be able to demonstrate that we are one of the highest achieving international schools in China.

Though undeniably important, we strongly believe that delivering an outstanding education is not just about the end exam results; it also involves the fostering of a sense of intellectual curiosity and a lifelong passion for learning. We aim to send inspired adults out into the world, equipped with the skills and independence necessary to thrive at university and beyond.
