Horizon Mandarin School


2018 – 2019 School Year Admission


Open Day 16th June 2018  



Horizon Mandarin School:

We are based at ISL Surrey Primary School, Woking, Surrey.  Our mission is to provide top quality Mandarin teaching to local families and to promote Chinese culture.

 Our focus is on fun and effective learning.  We follow a rigorous curriculum that supports both GCSE/A Level Chinese qualifications as well as the Chinese Proficiency Tests (HSK & YCT) designed for Mandarin acquisition from beginners’ level to advanced level.  We strive to lay a solid Mandarin foundation for our students, preparing them to become truly bilingual, biliterate and bicultural world citizens.  


All teachers are trained, experienced and share a love of teaching.  Our sessions are tailored with fun and interactive activities.  We focus on all four language skills, with attention to students’ individual needs and learning styles.  


We are now enrolling students for 2018/2019 school year:
