"Our relationship with China is a long and successful one," said Nord Anglia Education CEO Andrew Fitzmaurice, "We saw our first international school in China open in 2002 in Shanghai, while our highly successful bilingual school in Shanghai opened in 2016. Now, we're thrilled to provide the same high-quality bilingual education to students in Beijing. NAS Beijing will offer a leading international education whilst emphasizing Chinese culture and heritage. All of our students at the new school will enjoy personalised learning from teachers and receive a creative, challenging and highly rewarding education experience."

Madam Wang Qiuyan, CEO of Jinheng Tongda Investment Group, spoke positively of the partnership, "Nord Anglia Education is a world-renowned organization with a strong brand identity, forward-looking educational philosophy, unique educational resources and outstanding achievements. Jinheng Tongda and Nord Anglia Education are seeing more opportunities for collaboration and development. I hope to integrate both of our development strategies, organizational integrity and competitive advantages with Fangshan District's unique opportunities. This will result in a win-win collaboration where we strive tirelessly to enhance the educational offering in Fangshan District and nurture a pool of global talent.

As a premium school and with a differentiated educational offer, NAS Beijing will be uniquely placed in the city as an ideal option for internationally-minded families seeking quality education for their children.
