Profile

From August 2013, we became part of the Nord Anglia Education family of premium international schools. We are very excited about our current facilities, which cater to students aged 1 to 18. We follow the A-Level programme and our students have graduated with exceptional results, leading us to become the school of choice for expat families who want a British style education in Guangzhou. With the support of Nord Anglia Education, we are looking forward to expanding our facilities and offering our students an education second to none. We have a truly international flavour to our student body, with students from over 50 different countries. 

''

''We aim to offer a high quality education in an international setting, comparable to the best schools in the UK. There is no doubt that the amalgamation of motivated pupils, high calibre staff, enthusiastic parents and a superb learning environment helps us achieve this goal.

''

''We have two campuses both situated in the Nanhu area between lush, green hills, on the shores of Nanhu Lake and a golf course; about 30 minutes taxi ride from the city centre and just an hour away from Shenzhen and two hours away Hong Kong by train. We have an environment second to none for educating our students and make the most of the opportunities it affords us.

''

''All classrooms are light, attractively furnished and air-conditioned. Both campuses are well resourced and purpose-built facilities include music rooms, guided reading rooms, ICT suites, and dance studios, along with libraries, role-play and drama areas.

''

''The sites are very secure with extensive school grounds providing a purposeful and attractive outdoor area for the children. At the Early Years Campus, play and recreational facilities include a covered activity area, sand pit and climbing and play apparatus. Our Nanhu site is spread over three buildings and includes areas for sports such as basketball, golf and swimming as well as a floodlit football field, large indoor gymnasium, theatre, heated pool and dance studio.

''

''We want all teachers to grow professionally from their time with us. We provide opportunities for regular in-house INSET and also have a commitment to bringing key educational speakers out from the UK. Funds are also available for key staff to attend courses in the UK and within Asia and a comprehensive induction programme is organised for new staff (providing professional and personal support). Our school is committed to providing our students with experience of the latest technology. We have a 1:1 iPad programmme from Year 4 onwards and a 1:1 Mac Laptop programme at the Secondary School from Year 10 onwards. We also integrate the use of iPads into our Lower Primary and Early Years curriculum.

''

''We ensure that every child, in every classroom experiences the curriculum and standards we promise in our promotional literature. It is vital that all teachers in BSG understand that they are responsible for ensuring that the British School of Guangzhou is:

''A place where students can achieve their academic potential and have a great time as well."
