Two more high-quality international schools will be built in Sanya in the near future as part of a government effort to accelerate the development of international education in the city.

The two international schools, namely, Wesleyan College and Wycombe Abbey, UK, will run branches in Sanya.

Hainan International High School Affiliated to Wesleyan College in Sanya

The Hainan International High School Affiliated to Wesleyan College will be located in Haitang Bay. Construction on the facility will be divided into two phases. The first phase of the project will have a land area of 40,000 square meters, and involve an estimated investment of RMB 320 million. The construction period will last for two years. The second-phase development will feature a school branch of Wesleyan College in Sanya.

Universal Collegiate Alliances (UCA) is a United States-based company that provides consultation services with a focus on the cooperation of joint higher education programs in the U.S. and China. On October 30th, 2019, a Memorandum of Cooperation between the Sanya Municipal People’s government and Universal Collegiate Alliances (UCA) was signed.

Founded by UCA, the Hainan International High School Affiliated to Wesleyan College will follow International Baccalaureate standards, providing 23 academic majors and 38 AP programs for students in an English-speaking environment. All the academics will be taught by international teachers from the United States, and the school’s daily management will also be taken care of by the personnel staff from United States.

The Hainan International High School Affiliated to Wesleyan College will enroll 1,800 students (including students from China and Southeast Asian regions). It is expected to serve as a bridge for students to further their study at world-famous universities and colleges.

Wycombe Abbey International School in Sanya

On December 17th, the Sanya Municipal People’s Government signed a framework agreement with BE Education to cooperate on the construction of a Wycombe Abbey International School in Sanya.

The school will provide best-of-British education, combined with the very real strengths of the Chinese education system, preparing pupils to enter leading universities all around world.

The establishment of Wycombe Abbey International School in Sanya will allow local children and the children of foreign personnel working in Hainan to enjoy high-quality international education resources. At the same time, the new school will help Hainan to develop into an international free trade zone (port).

Wycombe Abbey in the UK is recognized internationally as one of the best schools in the world. Wycombe Abbey has opened two sister schools in the Chinese cities of Changzhou and Hong Kong. Another two sister schools are still under construction in Hangzhou and Nanjing.
