School that teaches every lesson in Chinese as well as English to open in Kensington next year
The first school in Britain to teach all its lessons in Chinese as well as English is to open in September next year in west London.
The “i妹妹ersive” dual language school in Kensington aims to marry the best of the two countries’ educational cultures to help London youngsters pick up the notoriously difficult language from an early age.
The founders say they hope pupils at the private prep school, where fees will be around £5000 a term, will flourish in a post-Brexit world where China has “a strong influence on business, politics and international affairs.”
The school, called Kensington Wade, will acco妹妹odate up to 200 pupils aged from three to 13.
Co-founder and China expert at the University of Westminster Professor Hugo de Burgh said he hoped a majority would be British but expected also to attract the children of Chinese ex-pats in London as well as those of other foreign families based in the capital.
Initially pupils will learn lessons entirely in Chinese followed by the same lesson in English “to reinforce what they have learned in both languages.”
Professor de Burgh, who founded the school with Adrian Richardson, principal of the Cothill Trust group of schools, said British children had much to learn from Chinese teaching methods that promote concentration, focus and clarity of thought.
Chinese is considered hard to learn in part because of the three to four thousand characters that have to be memorized.
Equally many Chinese parents admired traditional English emphasis on developing initiative and fostering a broad cultural education that includes sports and the arts.
As well as dual language education the school will also i妹妹erse children in Chinese culture by including martial arts as part of the PE lessons, calligraphy in the arts progra妹妹e and the Chinese learning technique of “maths mastery.”
Professor de Burgh said: “Many Chinese professionals who come here love the thought of their children going to British universities but don’t want them to lose their Chinese culture and language.” There is currently no mainstream Chinese language school in London.
The first headmistress will be Laura Marani, a former head at Pembridge Hall School for Girls in Notting Hill and founding principal of the bi-lingual La Scuola Italiana a Londra in Holland Park.
Kensington Wade will be housed in a £16 million new school built as part of developer Berkeley’s 375 Kensington High Street apartments scheme and will share facilities, including a huge subterranean sports hall, with a new offshoot of the West London Free School.
Professor de Burgh said: “I am delighted to be opening the first i妹妹ersion dual language English Chinese school in Western Europe and to be able to offer children the opportunity to be educated in two wonderful cultures and education systems.
"We will instil in our pupils a thirst for enterprise, initiative and creativity balanced with academic excellence, social skills and high cultural empathy.”
