School Overview: This is a well-resourced school with a motivated and enthusiastic student body. It is a highly selective English-medium, co-educational IGCSE and A Level Centre in China under the umbrella of one of the most successful and oldest UK school brands with a fantastic reputation. This school is also a boarding school, with approximately one third of students living on campus during the week. Most of the 550 students are nationals of the People's Republic of China who plan to pursue their universities outside China. To this end, students opt out of the Chinese education system at the end of junior middle school, after the zhongkao examination that is taken after nine years of compulsory government education, to follow a curriculum leading to Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) IGCSEs and A Levels.

All students go on to study at high-ranking universities and colleges in the US, Canada, Europe and the UK. The students are highly aspirational, very hard-working and bright. All of them have ESL issues to some degree and every teacher needs to be an English teacher as well as a subject teacher.

Location Overview: Suzhou is a charming city that is situated 80 KM west of Shanghai (22 minutes by fast train). It was recently voted as the second most "liveable" city in China for expatriates. Known as the "Venice of the Orient" it is an ancient city that is steeped in History and culture.
