School vision/Ethos:

The school adopts a Co-teaching model across the school to provide learning opportunities allowing students to enjoy the best of east meets west and become literate and numerate in both Chinese and English. There is particular emphasis on the Arts and Sport cultivating the value of cooperation, competition and innovation.

The school is on a purpose built campus with some of the best facilities.

Location Overview:

Beijing is a bustling city with more than 13 million people on an area of 16,800 sq. km - the size of Belgium. The Beijing Municipality is flat and has a very orderly design - north, south, east and west circumnavigated by six concentric ring roads. The Beijing seasons are clearly marked by changes in weather and temperatures, and surprising splashes of colours. Beijing today is a city of vast contrasts - the new intermingles with the old, and the whole city is developing rapidly. Beijing is also home to a sizeable expatriate population and you will find countless opportunities for a great social life - there is something for everyone here and western amenities are plentiful.

Accommodation is a modern on campus apartment and is a short journey away from the centre of Beijing.

This is an ASAP start vacancy but due to the lengthy work visa process - it is envisaged you will start in October or November.
