About Us

Welcome to Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH) International School Foshan, a dynamic, inspirational and joyful learning community, where boys and girls, from 11 to 18 years old, will be encouraged to think critically and creatively, and to become global-minded leaders of tomorrow. 

Opening in 2020, LEH Foshan is a day and boarding school that will deliver an exceptional British and international education. Our students will enjoy small class-sizes, exceptional teaching, and a wide range of extra-curricular activities as they prepare to sit International GCSEs and A Levels and graduate into some of the world's top universities. 

Once completed, our purpose-built campus will offer superb facilities, specialist performance spaces, as well as spacious sports and recreation areas. Our balanced timetable of academic endeavour and a wide-ranging programme of activities ensures students maintain the balance between work, rest and play necessary for their emotional development, wellbeing and future success.

Building on the impressive track record of our sister school in the UK, LEH Foshan will be a place of opportunity, challenge and friendship; a place to discover passions and talents; and a place that nurtures remarkable young people. Our goal is for our students to become expert learners, unafraid to tackle new and challenging ideas, prepared to take risks and become bold.
