King's College School Chengdu
About King's College School Chengdu
Dipont is a highly successful education group developing a network of independent schools in China in partnership with King’s College School, Wimbledon. Our new school in Chengdu, in South West China, will follow the successful development of Nanwai King’s College School and RDFZ King’s College School in Wuxi and Hangzhou respectively.
The Chengdu campus will open in September 2021 and will serve over 2,100 students from 3 to 18 years of age at capacity.
Facilities are outstanding and include a 600-seat theatre, 130-seat black box theatre, dance studio, first-class laboratories, sports fields, a running track, an Olympic 50m indoor pool, and a fitness and weight training suite. Our iconic new campus is located to the north east of the city centre, with beautiful hills and open green spaces surrounding it. The district is being developed for high-end residential projects and as an area for leisure and tourism.
Representing a new standard of bilingual education in China, the school will provide for both local and international pupils via an innovative model that combines Chinese and western approaches to learning and academic excellence, in the context of first-rate pastoral support and opportunities to excel outside the classroom. Our goal is to produce confident, articulate young people with a broad set of life skills who will go on to attend universities across the world.
King's College School Chengdu will incorporate:
- A pre-school for pupils aged 3 to 6 years catering for Chinese and expatriate children and offering a bilingual programme based on international and Chinese curricula
- A primary and middle school will deliver the Chinese curriculum in both Chinese and English (utilising international pedagogy) throughout the compulsory curriculum phases between Grade 1 and Grade 9.
- A senior school providing IGCSE and A Level courses, with the IBDP implemented in the future.
As has been the case with our schools in Wuxi and Hangzhou (now in their third years), we expect our students to very quickly embrace the holistic style of education and inquiry-based pedagogy employed.
