The King’s School will open its first overseas branch in the Nanshan district of Shenzhen, China in 2019. The school will blend our tradition of education with modern purpose, with design by award-winning London based architects, Walters & Cohen.

The new campus will be launched in two separate phases.  The Pre-Prep section for children aged 2-6 will open in Autumn 2019, and the Main School, which will include the Junior and Senior sections for children aged 6-18, will open the following year in 2020.

Our Pre-Prep section will be led by two co-Heads, one from the UK and one from China.  It will welcome local and international children of all nationalities and will follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) programme which is recognised worldwide as one of the leading programmes in promoting the learning and overall development of young children.

Our main school, for children aged 6-15, will fuse the British and Chinese National Curriculums.  Subjects will initially be taught in a mixture of English and Putonghua, with English increasing in later years.  Senior years for children aged 15-18 will work towards IGCSE exams while graduating seniors will be prepared for International A Levels, our school will be modelled on King’s in Canterbury to provide a vibrant and intellectually exciting learning environment as the ideal springboard for strong applications to the top UK and US universities as well as others worldwide.

Our state-of-the-art school complex will include a separate Pre-Prep building and the Main School building, with extensive outdoor spaces.  The entire campus will have wireless connectivity and will have continuous security surveillance to ensure everyone’s safety.
