Principal’s Welcome


Dear Parents,

Welcome to Foshan EtonHouse International School! I am so delighted to have opened this school, in order to serve the needs of international and local families living and working here.

As a new school, we ensure that each student and family is the right fit for us as we grow into a successful, vibrant, truly international centre for learning, discovery and thought. In order to do this, I am directly involved in the admissions process for each student and his or her family.

This beautiful new campus offers wonderful facilities for our British international programme and we are also going through the IB PYP (International Baccalaureate Primary Year Programme) Accreditation process as we expand. For our older pupils, we are offering the rigourous and highly respected IGCSE’s and A Level programmes as our students prepare to enter universities all over the world.

The FEIS teaching staff is fully qualified and the teachers are appointed not only from the U.K., but from countries around the world, giving us a first-hand global approach to all aspects of learning.

One can only truly appreciate a school by visiting, so I urge you to come and see us, personally. I shall be delighted to welcome you!

My very best and fondest regards


Grainne O’Reilly
