Hangzhou Wickham International School is an IB world school located near Xixi National Wetland in Hangzhou City, China. The school was founded in 2017 and we are proud of creating and practicing a balanced curriculum that aligns with IB philosophy and local values. Wickham always has the belief that students are to be independent, critical and creative thinkers, equipped with skills to contribute positively in their motherland and the communities where they will live.
Hangzhou Wickham International School aims to provide a supportive, inclusive, and creative learning community that encourages students to be lifelong learners and responsible citizens. We aspire to create a cooperative learner community with whom we witness students' development. We put students at the center of their own learning, stimulating learner agency through progressive educational methods. In doing so, we aim to improve students' communication skills, self-management skills, physical and emotional health.
Wickham school was established by a team of experts in education. We are well equipped with advanced facilities that enable us to deliver an education centered on students’ well-being. The school supports all subject areas with a well-balanced curriculum through various activities, including the Arts Festival, Science Festival, Mathematics Festival, Reading Festival, Sports Festival and International- Mindedness Festival. Technology is embedded across the curriculum, supported by a number of ICT staff and plentiful equipment, such as iPads, iMacs and Lego robots.
Our daily teaching and learning is underpinned by a strong belief in inclusive education. We respect and support diverse learning habits, interests and capacities, offering students differentiated classes and assessment as well as supportive teachers. In order to foster students' multiple intelligences, the school offers multi-functional classrooms, such as ICT and science classrooms, dancing studios, carpentry workshops, Lego rooms, art rooms equipped with sand art kits, music rooms and libraries.
Our teaching staff are highly experienced and represent more than 10 nationalities. Although our student population mainly comprises Chinese citizens, we warmly welcome students from other nationalities. In order to cultivate students' international mindedness, our highly qualified staff encourage our students to learn about diverse cultures and celebrate international festivals. At Wickham, we use Chinese as the language of instruction. Meanwhile, we use English as an important medium in teaching and learning. In doing so, our students will enrich their understanding of both Chinese and global cultures, paving the way to become global citizens in the future.
