A Truly British Learning Environment

The curriculum is thoughtfully designed, providing a truly British education within an international context. The school’s dedication to providing the highest quality learning experience has been recognised by the prestigious Council of British International Schools (COBIS) who have awarded the school its Patron’s Accredited Member status, joining an elite group of only 13 member schools (the only 1 in Guangdong Province) and being 1 of the 4 Patron’s Accredited members in mainland China.

Students are prepared for international GCSEs and A Levels. The teaching staff are predominantly from the UK and UK- trained, bringing a wealth of experience and advanced degrees. Classes are deliberately kept small, encouraging not just individual attention but also collaborative learning.

Spacious and Modern Campus

The purpose-built campus offers an expansive array of facilities, from state-of-the-art classrooms to specialist spaces for science, arts, and performance. The campus also features a well-stocked library, multi-media centre, and separate boarding houses for boys and girls. Sports and recreation areas are abundant, encouraging students to strike the critical balance between academic and extracurricular activities.

British Boarding: Home Away from Home

Uniquely, LEH Foshan offers an authentic British boarding experience, the only one of its kind in the Guangzhou and Foshan area. Boarding students enjoy a rich tapestry of evening and weekend activities, along with teacher-supervised study hours, thus enriching their educational journey. The physical space is also noteworthy – the campus won the Sustainable School Design Award in 2021, and even imported high-quality beds and mattresses from the UK to ensure optimal sleep quality.

Individualised Learning Support

The school also places a strong emphasis on individualised learning. Every student benefits from a customised learning plan, designed to optimise strengths and overcome challenges. English Language Learning (ELL) programmes are integrated to help students achieve native English- speaking proficiency, a crucial skill in today’s global landscape.

Daily Extra-Curricular Activities

Beyond academics, the daily roster of extracurricular activities is exhilarating. From sports like basketball and swimming to arts, music, and drama, the options are designed not just for skill development but also for the holistic emotional and physical growth of each child. LEH Foshan recognises that education is not just about bookish knowledge; it’s also about nurturing well-rounded individuals who are ready to take on the world.
