David Mumford, Head of the Early Years, welcomes families to join the school at the start of the new academic year. Following an unusual term when learning had to shift online due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our teachers reacted quickly to the changing circumstances. They worked with parents to ensure that education stayed engaging, social, and inspiring for the Early Years children. We also adopted the strictest standards to provide a healthy and safe environment for the children to learn, play and grow when we returned to campus at the end of the term - the only school in Shunyi to do so. As we welcome the new school year, we remain dedicated to helping students be the best that they can be to make a difference when they join the world beyond school.
