He was once the Pastoral and Safeguarding Leader and Assistant Headteacher for 13 years in a UK boarding school and his previous senior leadership roles have provided him with whole school responsibilities including pastoral provision. Over recent years, he had worked in a well-established and successful boarding school in Thailand as Head of Geography and the key worker within the boarding school community.

Welcome from the Head of Boarding

Boarding at LEH Foshan provides a ‘home away from home’ experience, where each student’s happiness, well-being and success is paramount. Day or full-time boarding options exist for students from Year 4 - 13 (8 - 18 years old).

In boarding, students successfully combine impressive intellectual endeavour with enthusiastic engagement well beyond academia. The priority in boarding is to provide the best pastoral care for all children, ensuring students thrive academically, socially, morally and culturally. Life in boarding provides fantastic opportunities where students can develop self-confidence, courage, independence, and optimism to achieve their personal goals.

Boarders are engaged in a wide range of after-school activities as well as a well-structured study routine which allows them to complete homework in a supportive and focused environment. Our impressive purpose-built campus facilities are available after school and at the weekend, and boarders also enjoy regular trips off campus.

The boarding team here at LEH Foshan extend a warm welcome to all boarders and their families. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the LEH Foshan community soon.
