Our Headteacher

Zhizhi Chen

In 2001, I obtained an MBA from the University of Edinburgh. After residing in the UK for 25 years, I held financial management positions in Shanghai and London. Driven by passion, I left my lucrative career 15 years ago to establish the Orpington Chinese School in London. Supported by the Chinese and British governments, we’ve expanded to six branches nationwide, educating over a thousand students. My message to Mandarin learners: “Empower Your Future with Mandarin Excellence!”
