The project is a joint venture with Trumptech, a leading provider of education services in China and Hong Kong, and represents an exciting new development for LEH.
The new school will offer students in Foshan and the rest of Guangdong province the opportunity to experience a British curriculum, learning style and environment, combining high academic standards with a wide range of extra-curricular activities. LEH, founded in 1710, is one of the top independent schools in the UK, with over 96% of GCSEs graded A* or A and 96% A*-B at A level.
Christopher Stokes, Chairman of the Board of Governors, commented: “We understand that Chinese parents aspire to the very best education for their children, one that shares the LEH ethos of success and that is operated to the same high standards. We believe that LEH Foshan will provide this.”
Mrs Heather Hanbury, Head Mistress, stated: “I am very excited about bringing LEH’s philosophy of education to Foshan. It will offer local children an opportunity to learn in an exceptional environment, combining the best elements of a British education with a strong extra-curricular programme. Being a part of the LEH family also offers opportunities for the children and staff of LEH Foshan to interact, learn and share with their peers in LEH Hampton. Our aim is to nurture students into global citizens who shape their world through independence, empathy, creativity and critical thinking.”
Mr Ming Kwok, Founder and CEO of Trumptech Education Group, added: “We are very excited to be working with LEH on this initiative. Our aim is to partner with like-minded people who share our vision in education. We are very happy to be working with Mrs Hanbury and her team to bring this wonderful school to Foshan. We hope to be able to collaborate with families, staff and the people of Foshan to offer an inspiring international education.”
