Grade 1 to Grade 9

Chinese Curriculum – Western Pedagogy​

Our curriculum is compliant with, and delivers, the Chinese National Curriculum through a genuine bilingual, bi-cultural programme. Students achieve academic excellence in both Chinese and English, at the same time developing leadership expertise. ​

Exclusively designed by senior education experts, our innovative approach blends the best of the Chinese National Curriculum (CNC) and the English National Curriculum (ENC). Utilising Harrow’s world-renowned teaching methodologies and approaches, core elements of the CNC (Biology, Chemistry, English, ICT, Mathematics, and Physics) are delivered in English. The result is a powerful combination of East and West, leading to deep curriculum knowledge, international awareness and Chinese wisdom. ​

Alongside subjects taught in English, Language Studies, Moral Education, History, Geography and Chinese Cultural Studies are taught in Chinese using Chinese teaching methodologies. This approach, a first in China, ensures that HILA students benefit from both Western and Chinese approaches to learning, gaining enhanced knowledge and skills. Students can also voluntarily take the Zhongkao examination.
