We are delighted to announce that George Watson’s College has been shortlisted for the Independent-state school partnership award in the 2020 TES Independent School Awards for its role in the Swire Chinese Language Centre Edinburgh.

Established in 2016 with the generous support of the Swire Chinese Language Foundation, the Swire Chinese Language Centre Edinburgh is a collaborative venture between George Watson's College, Boroughmuir High School and James Gillespie's High School to promote the teaching of Mandarin Chinese.

The Swire Centre provides a team of seven teachers who teach across 25 schools in Edinburgh and East Lothian. 

The intention is to provide high-quality teaching and learning of Chinese language and culture, with clear progression routes from primary to secondary education including access to qualifications at National 5, Higher, Advanced Higher and International Baccalaureate.

Congratulations to all involved! Winners will be announced at an Awards Dinner in February 2020.
