General understanding of education in the UK
Britain is renowned for its rigorous scholar and elite education. And when we think of Britain, we tend to think of the gentleman. A gentleman is not a "successful man" who wears fine clothes and is self-possessed, but a man who possesses both the common qualities of citizenship and distinctive characteristics, who is both self-supporting and useful to society.
The educational concept is integration. Our integrated education is reflected in, on the one hand, to strengthen the identity of students, a solid sense of identity to the traditional culture of the motherland; On the other hand, our education should help students understand and integrate into the global society as early as possible, such as the tolerance to the cultural differences between different regions of the world, the pursuit of scientific spirit, etc., so as to be ready to become global citizens.
The vision of St Bees is creating the next generation of global leaders. St Bees school’s curriculum are uniquely developed by our educational specialist team, which integrate the most advanced education approach from the UK and China.
Through Sarah's sharing, parents had a general understanding of elite education in the UK.
Preliminary understanding of EQ
Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist, believes that IQ only plays 20 percent of the role in a person's success, and the remaining 80 percent depends on EQ. Therefore, many children have poor grades and poor interpersonal skills, precisely because of the lack of EQ training!
Balanced development of IQ and EQ is an important part of St Bees school curriculum, which is to stimulate the comprehensive potential of students. The school not only attaches importance to the cultivation of academic ability, but also the shaping of character, values and global vision. Li , the psychology teacher, introduced the EQ course and the use and significance of the mental health consultation room in details.
Preliminary experience of ECA
The young reporters from Hebei Youth Daily visited our school. They visited the fencing classroom, the dance classroom and experienced the Ruan, a traditional musical instrument.
Fencing and Ruan are ECA courses in the school. The school offers more than 30 ECA courses such as language and culture, math and logic, scientific and technological innovation, humanistic quality, artistic perception, sports and health etc. As well as: debate, Chinese studies, math in games, STEAM lessons, dancing, painting, etc.
Different from patch-teaching in training institutions, ECA courses in schools are taught by professional teachers and are systematic. It can inspire the interest of students, and better stimulate the comprehensive potential of students.
