A King’s education is designed to encompass both depth and breadth providing all-round opportunities and a strong skills-base for them to flourish in the 21st century workplace. Built upon historic foundations and supported by the extensive co-curriculum and strong pastoral care, the developing individual is taken out into the wider world locally, nationally and globally.

As we move into the 21st century, new technologies from ‘big data’ to artificial intelligence are providing exciting opportunities for pedagogy. Our task is to develop and deliver an education that is relevant to our children’s future while building on strong values rooted in the past.

Learning at King’s is a dynamic experience both inside the classroom and outside. Our teaching aims to develop autonomy and positive motivation among our pupils. The purpose of our learning is not simply to pass examinations, but to prepare our children for a future of decision making and achievement.

All aspects of our new school, from the way we use the outside to the non-classroom spaces within the main buildings, have been designed to aid and support learning.

A King’s education provides very much a modern STEAM environment, embracing science, technology and mathematics with the arts, and encouraging all round personal development. Robotics, space and the environment will feature heavily as we look to recognise the strengths of modern day Shenzhen, and the need for modern day transferable skills, but we shall also encourage our pupils to share with us in the ‘beauty and joy of learning’ for its own sake.

Delivering 21st century skills

Our aim to deliver an innovative bilingual, blended Chinese-English curriculum for all our pupils with levels of language carefully graded according to a pupil’s ability.

The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report (2018) listed emerging skills for success in the workplace in the 21st century:

  • Creativity, originality and initiative
  • Analytical thinking and innovation
  • Active learning and learning strategies
  • Technology design and programming
  • Complex problem-solving
  • Critical thinking and analysis
  • Leadership and social influence
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Systems analysis and evaluation
  • Reasoning, problem-solving and ideation

All these are integral to a King’s Education and run throughout our approach to teaching and learning, both inside and outside the curriculum.

Universities

King’s school, Canterbury in UK has many centuries of experience in preparing students and delivering them to top universities. In Shenzhen, we shall be able to benefit from this experience and shall be employing expert advisors to help our students with their university and career choices.
On leaving school, King’s students study a great variety of subjects at the world’s top universities. Though we expect to increase this range with our graduates from Shenzhen, currently the most popular UK destinations are:

University of Cambridge
University of Oxford
University of London (UCL, KCL, LSE, Imperial College, Royal Holloway)
University of Edinburgh
Durham University
University of Bristol
University of Exeter
University of Manchester
Warwick University
University of Leeds
University of Nottingham

In addition, about 20-30 King’s leavers go to America each year, often on scholarships; this number is increasing. Others go elsewhere in the world.

King’s always provides a great deal of help and advice for students heading for university. Our Shenzhen campus will benefit from the many years of experience, resources and knowledge available from Canterbury.
