About the Innovative Bilingual Learner Programme
Between Grades 1 through 9, government regulations require that Chinese students complete all components of the mandatory Chinese curriculum.
The IBL programme aims to take this concept and curriculum framework across to other schools from Grade 1 through Grade 9. We are opening our first programme with a cohort of Grade 1 students in the wonderful city of Xi’an
Expatriate teachers will teach PE, art, music and English with bilingual teacher support. Chinese teachers will teach humanities, maths, Chinese and science classes. Learning and development will go beyond the classroom through a full range of co-curricular activities (CCA) led by teaching staff. The programme will offer more than 20 CCA courses in various sports, music and art activities, extra foregn language learning courses and other student clubs.
