Our Junior High pupils study in a Chinese and English learning environment with the curriculum deliberately designed to promote the very highest standards of bilingualism. From grades 6 to 9, pupils’ exploration of each subject becomes much deeper and richer than the primary level, as they develop their thinking abilities and language skills across all subject areas, which is required to become fully bilingual.
The Junior High curriculum builds on the foundation of our unique primary curriculum – within the rigorous framework of the Chinese national curriculum – while also blending in the most appropriate and effective elements of the Western educational ethos. This successfully prepares the pupils in our care for the further international education they will receive after they move up to High School.
The educational model for Junior High is structured around the Huili Values and Identity, to ensure that pupils are Inspired, Intellectual, Independent, Individual and Inclusive. Chinese and international staff work closely to provide deep learning experiences in every area, helping pupils to develop their own methods of studying, discover their strengths and potential while becoming more confident, responsible and independent in their learning. Pupils learn in an environment that not only exposes them to challenging subject contents, but also requires them to engage with their education in a way that promotes communication, creativity and critical thinking.
