School Overview: Following its high-profile launch in 2014, this KG - 18 international school has quickly become one of Ningbo's leading bilingual schools. Set on a first-class campus, the School offers a genuinely outstanding bilingual education that blends the best of British with the best of Chinese, students study toward IGCSE and A Level qualifications. The curriculum provides students with a broad and balanced learning experience - one in which tradition meets creativity, and East meets West. The curriculum is taught using a dual-language immersion approach - students benefit from lessons delivered by native speakers of English and Chinese. As well as supporting students to become bilingual, the low pupil to teacher ratio enables delivery of a highly personalised approach to learning. This school not only benefits from being part of the successful network of Schools within China (Shanghai, Beijing & Qingdao), but also from its strong relationship with its UK partner school.

Location Overview: Ningbo is one of China's oldest cities with a 7,000 year old history allowing visitors to embrace both an exciting and culturally stimulating city and experience a dynamic mix of both traditional and modern architecture and attractions. Ningbo sits on China's eastern coastline and is a long-established international port and trading post. The Hangzhou Bridge, the longest trans-oceanic link in the world, now connects Ningbo directly to Shanghai in about 2 hours.

Requirements: This is a UK curriculum school, who ideally require UK based experience however not essential, due to the nature of the school, teachers with EAL experience would also be preferred. They are happy to consider teachers who are flexible in their approach and with a minimum of 2 years post qualification experience. They would welcome teachers with families however applicants are advised to consider this is a bilingual school where at least 50% of the lessons will be taught in Chinese. Applications are welcomed from teachers from the UK, Australian, New Zealand, Canada, the USA and South Africa.
