Head Master's Welcome

Welcome to Lady Eleanor Holles International School Foshan (LEH Foshan). LEH Foshan is the first British international school in Foshan, a city at the heart of the Pearl River delta in Guangdong province.

LEH Foshan has been founded on the blueprint of one of England’s oldest and pioneering schools. Like our sister school in London UK, LEH Foshan combines impressive intellectual endeavour with engagement in a rich variety of pursuits beyond the classroom. A positive environment where quiet self-confidence, courage and optimism ensure all of our students develop a joyful approach to learning. Through an exciting, innovative curriculum that focuses on how students learn rather than what they learn we develop curiosity, optimism and determination. Through teamwork and collaborative learning, we encourage students to work to achieve common understanding and the importance of collaboration and communication.

Our school motto “Hope Favours the Bold” describes beautifully our educational objectives. At LEH Foshan, students learn to be courageous and ever hopeful, optimistic and determined in all that they do. Our goal is to prepare LEH Foshan students to be the leaders of the future: expert learners who are unafraid to tackle new and challenging ideas, prepared to take risks and move ahead positively. 

The extended boarding school day allows time for students to explore a range of interests and to be challenged to try something entirely new, to achieve so much more. It allows the school to educate the whole person to enable our students to achieve their ambitions.

I look forward to welcoming you to LEH Foshan in person.
