Geoff Cocksworth, Founding Executive Principal

It is a great honour and privilege to be responsible for the safe delivery and running of the King’s School in Shenzhen, just as it has been to be a small part of the history of such a great school in Canterbury. Modern Shenzhen could be more removed from Canterbury, yet King’s, the oldest school in Europe, will reinvent itself in this very different environment and culture. I look forward to establishing many vibrant links between the schools. We Shall all benefit from working together, just as we already are on the development of the project.

We have begun a truly exciting journey as we aim to establish what we plan to be one of the very best schools in Asia. We shall be providing an all-round education focusing upon the highest academic standards alongside providing many opportunities for wider personal growth.

These are exciting times in education, but what matters most is the way a school looks after its pupils. Nowhere does this better than King’s in Canterbury and, of course, now in Shenzhen where our whole approach is based upon providing our students with best standards of care and motivation. Our fundamental philosophy is one where we all respect and look after one another in a spirit of discovery and challenge.

I very much look forward to meeting as many people as possible in Shenzhen and to educating children of all nationalities as well as Chinese. I hope you will come to meet us and share in our excitement about this project and the education we shall provide.
