In September 2008, we became one of two sites to host the Jiangsu centre for Chinese Studies in conjunction with Confucious Classrooms for Essex.
Essex Local Authority has a long standing partnership of over twenty years with the Chinese Province, Jiangsu. The centre's aim is to facilitate the teaching of Mandarin both within school and business communities.
Essex Confucius Classroom In Autumn 2008 the Anglo European School, as part of a Consortium of Essex Schools (Burnt Mill Performing Arts College, Passmores School and Technology College and Stewards School) was awarded Confucius Classroom Status by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust (SSAT).
The Essex Confucius Classroom, in conjunction with the Jiangsu Centre, works to promote the teaching of Mandarin in Essex schools and to increase interest in and understanding of Chinese culture. Liz Garner, AST for Mandarin, manages the Essex Confucius Classroom.
The Confucius Classroom supports a number of Essex spoke primary and secondary schools, supported by the efforts of two teachers seconded from China. If you are interested in joining this group of schools please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
