Chengdu Westminster School
Opening its doors in September 2021, Chengdu Westminster School (CWS) will occupy an extensive site in Chengdu, the capital of Southwest China’s Sichuan province. At capacity, the bilingual school will offer an integrated curriculum to 2500 pupils aged one to 18. The compulsory Chinese National Curriculum for ages 6-15 will be central to curriculum provision in the Primary and Junior Middle Schools. Thereafter, in the Senior School, IGCSEs and A levels will be the mainstay of the curriculum.
The ethos of the School will be based upon that of Westminster with the curriculum, co-curriculum, structure and organisation of the School all drawing elements from the London institution. In due course, when at full capacity, around ten percent of the places at the School will be filled by outstanding pupils from low-income families, with scholarships offered to cover their full tuition fees.
Strong links will exist between the two Schools with pupils and staff benefiting from programmes exploring a range of disciplines including academic subjects, national culture, sport, language, drama, music and art.
The founding Head Master of the School is Mr Rodney Harris, former Head of Geography, Housemaster and Deputy Head (Academic) at Westminster.
