A ground-breaking ceremony and reception at the site in Chancheng, Foshan tookplace on 23 October 2018, officially marking the start of construction of their new campus.
Upon completion, the co-ed Lady Eleanor Holles International School Foshan (LEHF) will educate up to 750 students aged 12 to 18 from Foshan and the Greater Bay Area of Hong Kong and Macau. The school will offer an enhanced British curriculum, learning style and environment, combining high academic standards with a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
Founded in 1710, LEH is one of the top independent schools in the UK, with over 93% of GCSEs graded A* or A and 96% A*- B at A level. LEH is one of the few girls’ schools to have embarked on expanding their franchise internationally.
The event will be attended by the head of the Education Bureau Foshan; Mr Andrew Ould, the British Deputy Consul-General in Guangzhou; Mrs Heather Hanbury, the Head Mistress of LEH; Mr Christopher Stokes, Chairman of the Governors of LEH; Mr. Steve Allen, the Head Master of LEHF; and Mr. Kwok Tin Ming, the CEO of LEHF partner Trumptech, amongst others.
The project is a joint venture with Trumptech, a leading provider of education services in China and Hong Kong.
