About Wycombe Abbey School Changzhou
Wycombe Abbey School Changzhou (WASCZ) is the sister school to the esteemed Wycombe Abbey School UK, founded in 1896. We offer a British boarding programme for students as young as 8, and were recognized as the 'Best International School' by the Boarding Schools' Association (BSA) in 2022.

Since 2015, our summer school programmes have enriched the lives of thousands of students. Our emphasis on sports, eloquence, arts, science, and language fosters comprehensive personal growth, guided by experienced educators and engaging learning experiences.

At WASCZ, a central pillar of our mission is to foster cultural exchange between Chinese and international youth. We have hosted hundreds of students from around the world, and this year we launched the 'Engage with China' Scholarship Programme by awarding ten outstanding UK students scholarships for a two year A-level curriculum.

Drawing from a wealth of experience, we are set to provide an unparalleled educational journey with the 2024 WAS Global Perspective in China Summer Camp.
Global Perspective in China

Students will delve into the intricacies of the Chinese language, come to cherish the profound depths of Chinese culture, and witness the rapid modern development of China. As they navigate the confluence of Chinese and Western traditions, they'll forge a broadened global outlook, hone critical thinking abilities, and develop the ability to communicate and interact across cultures.

  • Our curriculum is anchored in the belief that culture forms the bedrock, succeeded by practical skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Our experienced teachers customize lessons to suit each student's proficiency level. Students will explore Chinese characters, delve into classical literature, appreciate traditional clothing styles, immerse in the tea culture, and resonate with Chinese rhythm and music, enriching their understanding and language skills.
  • Beyond the classroom, our students have the opportunity to discover a world of exciting sports, from rugby and rowing to netball, tennis, swimming, soccer, volleyball, basketball, and table tennis. Through the spirit of sports, competition, and teamwork, they will collaborate with peers from diverse cultural backgrounds.

    As the day progresses, a vibrant tapestry of boarding life comes to life. Students will savor authentic Chinese cuisine, immerse themselves in traditional Chinese board games. Navigating the nuances of boarding life, they enhance their self-reliance, discipline, and interpersonal skills, building connections that transcend borders.
  • Our camp embodies the "Education Beyond the Classroom" philosophy. Students embark on academic excursions to cultural landmarks such as museums, Chinese gardens, and historical sites. They explore Chinese history, art, and culture, encountering unique experiences like traditional tea ceremonies and shadow puppetry.

    In addition to cultural exploration, students will tour Changzhou’s green energy facilities, gain unique access to cutting-edge industries, explore China's technological advancements, and engage in discussions with Chinese peers on global topics, fostering a blend of Eastern and Western perspectives.
