About Us Welcome from the Head
It will be our mission to ensure Wycombe Abbey School Nanjing not only delivers an outstanding education but also provides an unparalleled 'state of the art' school, which will enable our pupils to enter the very best universities in the world.

Dear Parents,

 

I am delighted to welcome you to Wycombe Abbey School Nanjing, a school in which "Every Child Can Excel". Our mission is to offer academic excellence alongside a strong holistic and boarding programme to foster a love of learning that will last a lifetime.

 

The Wycombe Abbey family of schools are renowned for excellence and our Nanjing school will be following in these impressive footsteps! Our innovative integrated curriculum, with a focus on dual language acquisition leading to bilingualism in Mandarin and English, will ensure your child can confidently set off on a journey of self-discovery. This journey will allow them to develop their individual and unique talents, empowering them to become future leaders within our global society.

 

Wycombe Abbey School Nanjing is an all through (K-12) day and boarding school offering the Chinese curriculum, delivered through internationally recognised teaching methodology and pedagogy. Our creative curriculum develops children's intellectual curiosity and reinforces their cultural identity, enabling our students to graduate successfully and take their place at renowned universities across the world. Your child will become part of a caring community, where they will be nurtured and encouraged to take full advantage of an extensive co-curricular programme; this programme is focused on developing the whole child and provides ample opportunity for them to follow their natural curiosity and hone essential life skills such as creativity, team work and leadership.

 

Our school is a modern, purpose-built campus, which includes a wide range of excellent facilities where your child can learn, grow and have fun. This includes state of the art teaching classrooms and laboratories, a STEM centre, two libraries, a 600-seat theatre, a dedicated Chinese cultural centre, a state of the art Early Years Centre and separate Upper and Lower School boarding houses. The sports centre houses two indoor gyms, a 25-meter swimming pool and outdoor courts. These impressive facilities will allow our students to pursue their interests across a range of subjects and activities and help them to develop to their fullest potential.

 

In line with our sister Wycombe Abbey Schools, all staff within our community are committed to the highest level of pastoral care, which is further enhanced through our strong boarding programme. Having developed my career in renowned independent boarding schools in both the UK and China over the past 20 years, I am looking forward to building and shaping Wycombe Abbey School Nanjing into an exceptional learning community.

 

It is a great honour to be the Founding Head of a school of such impressive calibre and I warmly encourage you to explore the website and to get in contact with our admissions department.

 

I look forward to welcoming you to Wycombe Abbey School Nanjing!

Mrs Carlien Shelley
