Our Vision:

How we develop cultural capital:

How we know your child is succeeding:

How you can support your child:


At EWPS, Mandarin is taught as our modern foreign language. Our children enjoy learning Mandarin. As a result they have shown good progress from Nursery to Year 6. From Year 5 to Year 6, they are given the opportunity to take the Young Chinese Test (YCT). The test results have averaged over 85% at any given time.


Most recently we celebrated an outstanding achievement of teaching and learning Mandarin in partnership with South Bank University Confucius Institute. Our children not only learn Mandarin but they are also actively engaged in discovering Chinese culture and heritage.
