Academic Excellence

Following the tradition of our sister school, one of the Top 10 schools in the UK, LEH-Foshan will be a place of opportunity, challenge and friendship. High academic standards and expectations combined with a joyful learning environment will enable students to graduate to the world’s leading Universities.   

LEH-Foshan students follow an enhanced English National Curriculum leading to the internationally recognised IGCSE qualifications at age 16 and A Level qualifications at age 18.  Highly qualified and inspirational teachers from the UK together with state-of-the-art facilities support our focus on academic excellence whilst allowing students to acquire and build the skills they need to succeed throughout their lives.

Age 12-14

Students joining the school at age 12 will follow an engaging and rigorous curriculum that will enable them to develop their own academic interests while providing a broad foundation on which to build.  All students from age 12-14 will study English, Mandarin, Mathematics and Science (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) alongside Humanities (Geography, History and Philosophy) and Technical / Creative Arts (Fine Art, Computing, Drama, Music and Technology).  A programme of Personal, Health and Social Education, Physical Education and Tutor Periods will ensure students develop an understanding of health and wellbeing alongside their academic studies.

Age 14-16

Students from age 14-16 will follow a 2-year programme leading to IGCSE qualifications.  A compulsory core of English, Mandarin, Mathematics and Science will be complemented by 3 or 4 option choices.  In addition, they will have a non-examined core programme of Physical Education, Personal, Health and Social Education and Critical Thinking.

Age 16-18

Students in the final two years of school (16-18) will follow a 2-year programme leading to A Level qualifications and university entrance examinations where appropriate.  The compulsory core of Physical Education, Personal, Health and Social Education and Critical Thinking will enhance a programme of 3 or 4 A Level subjects.
