Welcome from Head of the British Secondary and High School Section

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the British Secondary and High School Section of Taipei European School. The British Secondary and High School provides a world class, dynamic learning environment for students. We focus on developing the whole child by encouraging students to strive for academic excellence and cultivate skills that enable them to be responsible and productive global citizens.   

 

We are hugely proud of the fact that our graduates consistently win places in universities that are among the best across the world. However, the growth and development of our students goes beyond their academic excellence; they also develop the qualities of cultural understanding, compassion, empathy and tolerance through their daily life at school. Our aim is to enable our students, however long they are with us, to grow into kind, thoughtful and responsible citizens of the world. With this in mind, we provide all students, from Year 7 to graduation, with high levels of pastoral support that ensure that the school environment is nurturing and safe and therefore conducive to the highest standards of learning.

Our students have access to the best and most respected curriculum programmes in the world. We offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) to students in their final 2 years of schooling. The IBDP is recognised around the world as a high-quality and challenging educational programme. It offers students the opportunity to gain access to the best universities across the world. In Years 10 and 11 students undertake the rigorous International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE). The IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for high school students and is excellent preparation for the IB Diploma. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 undertake Key Stage 3 of the National Curriculum of England and Wales.   

As part of our commitment to developing the whole child we place particular emphasis on service and values. Students are involved in a range of service activities in Taiwan and throughout Asia to help those most in need. These programmes develop leadership, empathy, responsibility and team work skills in our students. Our Secondary Values of Participation, Respect, Responsibility, Creativity and Perseverance are imbedded in the day to day life of the campus.

 

I am enormously proud of this school and the high quality education on offer. Students thrive in the dynamic, happy and collaborative educational environment we provide.

 

I warmly welcome you to our school.
