Welcome to Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH) International School Foshan, a dynamic, inspirational and joyful learning community, where boys and girls, will be encouraged to think critically and creatively, and to become global-minded leaders of tomorrow.

Get to know LEH Foshan

Opening in September 2020, LEH Foshan will be a specialist secondary school providing the space, facilities and expert teaching for boys and girls aged 10-18 to flourish, either as day students or as boarders. We will teach an enhanced British Curriculum, IGCSEs and A level, leading to entry to the top universities around the World.

Our key academic staffs have joined to set up the School. We have secured talented and experienced staff who have a track record of teaching at the highest levels. The teaching staff are British and have a wealth of experience teaching in the UK and around the World. On average they have been teaching for 15 years.

LEH Foshan will offer an enhanced British curriculum leading to IGCSE and AL qualifications. AL provides choice and allows students the space to think and the time to develop their passions and interests. AL qualifications are widely respected and accepted by all the World’s leading universities. They provide practical experience and ensure that students are active participants in their own education. They develop the key skills of critical and creative thinking, problem-solving and encourage craftsmanship and collaborative working.

At LEH Foshan, the core of every students’ curriculum up to the age of 16 is English, Mathematics and Science. As students get older they are able to tailor their pathway by choosing from a range of elective subjects. In the final 2 years, students have a free choice of subjects. All student is treated as an individual and they will be encouraged to tailor their study and enrichment curriculum to suit their passions, interests and university ambitions.

Home Away from Home

Boarding students at LEH Foshan develop a new level of independence, resilience and confidence. As well as benefiting from a full timetable of academic subjects, they also enjoy a strong programme of extra-curricular activities and teacher-supervised Evening School (time in the evening for home learning). 

Spacious Environment & State-of-the-art Facilities

LEH Foshan enjoys a spacious, green environment and incorporates the latest thinking in school design. It offers state-of-the-art facilities include:

When students join LEH Foshan, they will share an en suite room with students of the same age. The modern design of the rooms will ensure they have privacy, space to work individually or collaboratively while providing the support and facilities to ensure the students need only focus upon their learning.

Common Rooms in each House will ensure students have space to relax and socialise in their free time and will help integrate students and develop House spirit. While 3 meals a day will be provided in the Dining Hall, kitchenettes will allow students to make hot drinks and snacks at other times.

The supportive ‘House’ environment, the wealth of activities, regular exercise, good diet and sleep, top quality medical care and a consistent focus upon our values, combined with the experience of our staff and expert guidance from LEH UK will help us to achieve joyfulness and well-being.
