The Lower School includes the Pre-Prep School (Y2-Y5). It encourages students to become independent learners; from taking a greater role in their own personal organization to increasing their ability for independent thought and responsibility for their own learning.

In the Pre-Prep School, students experience a more formal structure to the School day with discrete subject lessons, an increased number of specialist lessons and an extra-curricular programme. Throughout the phase, there is a strong emphasis on Language and Learning and many of the students speak English as a second language.

An ability to support Language learning would be a significant advantage.

COVID-19 & China border updates

Borders in China reopened to foreigners in Summer 2020. However, with increased COVID-19 cases in Mainland China, the number of visas issued has decreased and schools are having great difficulty hiring outside of China. There are only a very limited number of schools who can obtain a PU letter and get a work visa. Contact us to see if you are applicable.

If you are already in China, your start date could be as soon as a few weeks. Salaries for teachers inside China are highly competitive so contact us for the best-paid teaching jobs in China.

If you are outside of China, your earliest start will around Summer 2021, however much will depend on the constant evolving situation. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date.
