School Vision / Ethos: This is a hugely exciting project to be involved with.

Location Overview: With a long history dating back to approximately 5,000 years, the city is located in the northern part of the Pearl River, 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Guangzhou. It is a vital part of an active economic zone comprising of Guangzhou in the east, Hong Kong and Macau in the south, all of which are easily accessible by public transport which is well designed to support this travel.

The climate is seasonal enjoying warm summers and cool winters make it ideal for the farming of fish and rice, certainly much greener and open than its more industrial neighbours. Besides fishing and farming, the local craftsmen were also known for their skills in making ceramics. Thriving handicraft industries, commerce, and the arts made Foshan one of the four most famous towns in Tang and Song (960-1279) dynasties. It has a reputation as the home of Chinese ceramic arts, Cantonese operas and martial arts.

Foshan is a modern city. It was one of the earliest ports to engage in foreign trade since China´s open door policy. It also has become the third largest city in Guangdong Province, combining its manufacturing industries with tourism. In recent years, Foshan has committed its resources to further expand its vibrant tourism industry. Steeped in history, teamed with modern malls and easily accessible transport to Hong Kong and Macau, this is the ideal opportunity to live and work in a stunning city, with plenty to keep you entertained at a cost that will allow you to save.
