The King’s School, Canterbury, Shenzhen will be a world class K12 International School to deliver an all-round education from early years right through to entrance to the top universities internationally.

The school will be an example of the best of its type, a modern school in a modern city, but built on strong historical, educational roots.

The Kindergarten will comprise a Nursery and Kindergarten,

known as the Pre-Prep School, educating around 350 children from 3-7 years old spreading across 16 classes (maximum of 22 in a class). All classrooms will have safe indoor and outdoor areas both for play and for educational activity. The rooms for the youngest will have their own sleeping areas.

The main school will educate 1000 children from 7-18.

For pastoral and practical reasons, the school will has four divisions, Lower, Middle, Upper and Sixth Form, but will fall under a single senior management structure. Teaching & learning will take place in state-of-the-art spaces comprising a mixture of traditional classrooms and exciting breakout research or maker-spaces. Teaching groups will be a maximum of 22 for the younger years, but smaller for the more specialist education required at the highest level.

Modern children need to be active, that is to be doing things.

Days when a school is just classrooms with rooms facing a teacher standing or sitting in front of a board are over. In a world dominated by information, teaching and learning take on a different model which moves beyond the classroom and beyond the school (through virtual learning platforms). All aspects of our new school, from the way we use the outside to the spare spaces within the main buildings, are therefore being designed to aid and support learning.

Our school will be 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.

Similarly, alongside the curriculum facilities, there will be many co-curricular attractions.

Our students will have many opportunities for physical activity and the development their creative side. Sport, music and drama will feature strongly in the life of our students. We shall also benefit from our exciting location which, although within a city, is surrounded by forests and mountains.

The school will be run very much as a community.

It will benefit from having top quality boarding facilities for students and a substantial number of staff apartments. The teaching staff will be a mixture of international and local Chinese.
