A New Journey at SPGS International School Chengdu Begins Now

After two years of thorough preparation in London as well as in Chengdu, on 31 August, SPGS International School Chengdu opened its doors to its first cohort of students and began a promising and exciting year. The School is built on a close partnership with the UK’s world-renowned St Paul’s Girls’ School (SPGS) to incorporate the most outstanding aspects of the St Paul’s education and ethos.

The Opening Ceremony honoured the successful collaboration of St Paul’s Girls’ School, the UK Government, the Chengdu Municipal People's Government and the Chengdu Hi-Tech Zone Management Committee. It also recognised the opening of SPGS International School Chengdu as another milestone in developing high quality, international and modern education within Chengdu’s Hi-Tech District. This long-awaited moment was celebrated with an official Opening Ceremony on our brand-new campus and gathered founding families and staff as well as representatives from the Chengdu Government, Hi-Tech Zone Government and the UK Government. Unable to attend in person due to COVID travel restrictions, Sarah Fletcher, High Mistress of St Paul’s Girls’ School, Sarah Fletcher, Qin Li, CEO of Shengbo International China, Qin Li, and Peter Hawksworth, Incoming Headmaster-designate Headmaster, sent their congratulations via video messages.

The Opening Ceremony celebrated the beginning of a new, exciting journey of "learning and discovery" for SPGS International students who will be guided by an exceptional team of qualified and professional educators. This momentous occasion was marked by heart-felt speeches delivered by our distinguished guests who expressed their gratitude and pride in the achievement.

Following the opening ceremony, parents enjoyed an orientation session while children learned about their daily routines and took part in activities designed to enable them to get to know one another. The team was thrilled to see their endeavours become a reality and look forward to what promises to be a fantastic school year.
