The King’s School, Canterbury dates back to the year 597 though it acquired its name ‘The King’s School’ in 1541 when the institution was re-founded under King Henry VIII. 

Today, it is a leading UK independent co-educational boarding and day school, situated in the heart of the historic Cathedral city of Canterbury in Kent, UK. 

The King’s School, Canterbury, Shenzhen International, is being designed as a world class K12 School to deliver an all-round education from early years right through to entrance to the top international universities. The school will be an example of the best of its type, a modern school in a modern city, but built on strong historical, educational roots. The location of the site is excellent and possesses a superb background of tree-lined hills. 

The Nursery and Kindergarten, known as the Pre-Prep School, is a bilingual school and is targeted to open in September 2019 in bespoke accommodation. All classrooms will have safe indoor and outdoor areas both for play and for educational activity. 

Serving children aged from 2 to 6, the Pre-Prep will have its own International Head (reporting to the Principal) who will be supported by a Chinese Deputy. Classes will have at least two teachers: one international and one Chinese.

If successful, you will take primary responsibility for the academic, social and welfare needs of all children within your class, ensuring that parents are kept fully informed of their child’s progress. 

You will be responsible to the Head of Pre-Prep for teaching allocated classes to achieve curriculum objectives consistent with the abilities of the children.
