Our Curriculum and Teaching Methods

Our world-class teachers, rigorous curriculum and pupil-centred teaching methods engage, inspire and extend our pupils so that they do not only achieve highly, but also love learning and are excited to come to school. Like our founding school in England, we aim to combine superior examination results with limitless opportunities beyond the classroom to provide each pupil with a pathway to the best universities in the world.

Academic rigour

And intellectual curiosity

King’s College School Chengdu provides a first-class education to Chinese and international pupils aged 3 to 18 years. Teaching takes place on an iconic campus in which our state-of-the-art facilities create an engaging and exciting learning environment for all age groups.

Our teachers know how important it is to help pupils develop both academic thoroughness and intellectual curiosity. As a result, they combine the rigour of Chinese schooling with the cutting-edge approach to pedagogy that is the hallmark of our founding partner, King’s College School, Wimbledon. This not only enables our pupils to achieve excellent examination results, but to also develop the creativity and critical thinking skills that are so prized by the world’s leading universities.

Our delivery of the curriculum blends a rich variety of modern teaching methods, all of which are founded on sound research. This encourages pupils to develop independent and searching minds as well as impressive test scores, achieving their potential in public examinations while also taking pleasure in the life of ideas.

The academic, co-curricular and pastoral

We aim to develop a community that is highly stimulating, vibrant and open: a place where pupils are exposed to a wealth of experiences, are surrounded by teachers and students with diverse interests and are challenged each day to truly excel.

We do so through a foundation of the three elements that underpin a King’s College School education: academic, co-curricular and pastoral.

We establish a culture of scholarship by:

Extending learning

Learning is not confined to books and the classroom, and our pupils develop through independent learning, from working with others and participation in activities both within and beyond our extensive campus.

Focusing on the individual child

Our teachers go above and beyond subject content to offer individualised teaching that fosters the emotional, social and academic development of every child.

Embracing the best of east and west

Our integrated curriculum is delivered by a team of Chinese and international teachers who work closely together to apply the research-informed teaching methods that are proven to offer a superior learning experience for each child.

Promoting partnerships

Our school is a collaborative learning community that partners with other schools, unites staff, and works with pupils, families and the local community to promote mutual understanding and development.
