About Lady Eleanor Holles International School Foshan
Opening in September 2019, Lady Eleanor Holles International School Foshan (LEH-Foshan) has been founded to provide a British high school education to the expatriate community in Foshan, the first school in the city to do so. When full, LEH-Foshan will educate 750 boys and girls aged 12-18, with both day and boarding options. Although LEH-Foshan is an independent school, it is closely linked with The Lady Eleanor Holles School (LEH) in the UK and shares the same joyful approach to learning.
Founded in 1710, LEH is one of the oldest and most prestigious academic girls’ schools in the UK. Renowned not only for the outstanding academic education it offers it also has an enduring reputation for excellence in sport and in the creative and performing arts.
Under the proactive support and guidance of LEH, LEH-Foshan aims to become a beacon of educational excellence and the premier School in the region. We believe that all students can achieve academic excellence through hard work and creative teaching, but school should also be fun, challenging and adventurous. At LEH-Foshan students will learn to balance their academic studies with a wealth of extra-curricular activities. Students learn many lessons through these activities, discover passions and interests that will last with them for life and develop skills that make them more effective learners.
The location: Foshan
LEH-Foshan is situated in the heart of Foshan, a city the size of London with a rich and varied cultural heritage. Foshan is a clean, modern city with the ambition to become the hub for high-technology, bio-science, and finance in the Greater Bay Area. The city is famous for its porcelain ceramics, the martial art Wing Chun (Kung Fu), Chinese opera and its Cantonese cuisine.
The area surrounding the School is green and air quality is good. There are plenty of cycling and running tracks along the banks of the Dongping Waterway and adjacent to the Ban Yuedao wetland park. Traditional culture has been preserved in nearby Lingnan Tiandi, which has been redeveloped as a pedestrianised restaurant and shopping area.
The School is 45 minutes from the International Airport in Guangzhou and just under an hour from Hong Kong and Hong Kong International Airport by high-speed train.
