Curriculum

Following the tradition of our sister school as one of the Top 10 independent 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.

Ages 11-14 (Year 7 - 9)

Students joining the school at age 11 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 11-14 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 (Year 10 - 11) International GCSEs

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.  Students joining at 15 years old may choose a pre-A Level year of intensive English language preparation. In addition, they will have a non-examined core programme of Physical Education, Personal, Health and Social Education and Critical Thinking.

Age 16-18 (Year 12 - 13) A Levels

Students in the final two years of school from ages 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.
