ISA Wuhan is a member of the rapidly growing educational not-for-profit organization, ISA Education Group. Our campus will open in August 2022 and will be the largest educational project in central China with a RMB 1.6 billion (£180 million) investment. Located in the beautiful city of Wuhan, our campus is laid out on 28 acres of prime land beside the famous Yangtze River. The campus will comprise two separate K-12 schools, one being the international school for foreign personnel the and the other the foreign language school. This will enhance a broad education enabling students not only to have a truly international educational experience but also to receive a rich Chinese language and culture education. The site will boast state-of-the-art facilities including an Olympic-sized swimming pool and two athletics tracks. The campus will also enjoy a multi-purpose sport building, outdoor pitches, tennis courts, a dedicated Performing and Visual Arts Centre, Auditorium and Lecture Theatres. ISA prides itself in creating world-class accommodation facilities that will be used to full effect to ensure every boarder receives a meaningful holistic education.

The K-12 International School for foreign passport holders will be an IB world school. Our Kindergarten will complement the IB curriculum with a Reggio Emilia-inspired education. Through our balanced and well-rounded approach to education, our graduates will be admitted into the leading universities around the world and lead rewarding careers enjoying contented lives.
Wuhan has a rich culture of Chinese heritage and history. Its central location connects it effectively with the four corners of China, which lends itself well for travelling around this diverse and fascinating country. Wuhan is the common disembarkation point in the world-renowned ‘Three Gorges’ River cruise. Recently, this central city has developed a fine tradition for technological and industrial advancement (for example, with foreign automotive manufacturers committing vast resources to the area). The education sector has an enviable reputation for being one of the leading centres of academic excellence both in primary/secondary schools and universities. Consequently, Wuhan has often been compared to Chinese Tier 1 cities in terms of its innovation and ambitious plans to take the economy and infrastructure to the next level. Known as the ‘Chicago of China’, Wuhan certainly lives up to its sobriquet with excellent amenities and a first-rate health system.
The economic zone in which the school is located, awards unique benefits to expats not available in many other cities in China. For example, long-term visas (up to 5 years) and multiple real estate property purchases, including apartments and villas at affordable prices, are just two of the many advantages of living and working in the area. The surrounding area is being transformed into a high-tech zone with a vast array of super-shopping malls with a wide range of brand names and a multitude of restaurants visible, adventure parks for hiking and boating, golf courses, a professional motor-racing circuit et al. The new metro station sits outside school and takes passengers straight into the heart of the city on the express line affording them wonderful views of the Yangtze en route. In addition, with its low cost of living, renowned cuisine, vibrant entertainment scene and high quality of life, Wuhan is fast becoming the city of choice for people to work and live in.
