    It is an absolute pleasure to work with the students, colleagues and parents of BMH as we strive to be the best we can be. Learning, teaching and parenting are challenging processes and make big demands on us as humans practically, intellectually and emotionally. Being big hearted and open minded requires courage and I am often moved by the constructive energy brought to bear in lessons and meetings around the campus. So much of what we do in this world requires great teamwork and collaboration. Here our character is further challenged and strengthened as we reach out to fellow students, colleagues and family members in that generous act of providing practical or emotional support. BMH is shot through with such an ethos as evident on a visit to the school. It is a privilege to serve with students, colleagues and parents as we strive to nurture and educate one another in our endeavours to make the world a better place by being the best versions of ourselves. I hope this website gives you a glimpse of how this ethos manifests itself at our school.

    It has been a great honour to join Bromsgrove School Mission Hills in 2021. My aims are to practise a higher education philosophy, diversify my career, look up to the stars and stick to my faith, and devote myself to educating people. Teachers and students build a cultural landscape together, establishing value in the pursuit of benevolence, beauty, and wisdom; family and school build an emotional landscape together, establishing value in upholding freedom, diversity, and openness. Plato once said, “The direction in which education points a man will determine his future life.” Let us return to common sense, explore our potential, and create unlimited possibilities for the development of our students!

    "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" – Nelson Mandela

    As a teacher and Academic Deputy Head, I strongly believe that fostering critical thinking skills is at the heart of what we do in education. I am committed to giving students the tools they need to see their own value, analyse information and situations, and effectively solve problems.

    My teaching style can be best described as one that incorporates a diversity of teaching methodologies and techniques. Using case studies, real-life examples, and thought-provoking questions, I encourage students to consider their role and how they fit into society. I believe students should apply what they learn in one subject to another subject they are studying. I work to break down the barriers between individual topics and encourage cross-functional application and transference of knowledge.

    Education is not a one-size-fits-all discipline, and I believe it's essential that my approach is tailored to the specific learning needs of each student. I get to know the students to help them cultivate their own voice and choice in the way they learn, enabling them to take ownership of their learning and foster a love of learning, reaching new levels of excellence.

    I believe that a good international school must reflect the diversity of a multitude of nations and cultural tolerance, identify the beauty with each of them, share the beauty and achieve unity. Bromsgrove School Mission Hills is exactly such a school in no doubt. We wish every child in BMH will be able to take root in China but also with an international mind. From this perspective, we combine traditional Chines Five Constant virtues: Ren、Yi、Zhi、Xin with modern western civility. Through cross-cultural communication and inquiry-based learning, students will learn to respect differences and show their personality, pursue excellence and become a compassionate global citizen. At the same time, we will guide students to discover the relationship between humans and nature, humans and society, humans and humans, humans and ego, and then find and identify their value.

    With a blend of best practice from both East and West, teacher and students will experience a memorable journey in Bromsgrove School Mission Hills. Through interaction of teaching and learning, multiple intelligence development and cultivation, everyone is unique, they have the courage to explore and innovate to make their miracle on the world.

    Every parent who has chosen or will choose Bromsgrove School Mission Hills has done serious research and comprehensive comparison, and agrees with our education philosophy. As such, let us hold hands and combine our energies to help children grow up with happiness, health, vivacity and elegance.

Message from Leadership - Pre School

  • Message from Angela Zhou

    After 18 years as a head teacher in early education, I feel more and more in love with my job and inseparable from children. In a Pre School full of love and energy, you will notice that every area of the school has been exquisitely decorated with care; you will be nourished by the close and trusting relationship between teachers and students; you will feel the joy and achievement brought by every progress of children; you will notice how well-connected a professional staff team is; you will have the opportunity to experience the excitement and inspiration that comes from the right teaching methods; you will also feel how great the charm of early education is; and you will also experience enjoyment of working with like-minded parents who share the same philosophy. This is what our Pre School looks like in our learning community.

    We have a team of professional teachers, innocent children, and advanced early education concepts and practices. We have always adhered to the child-centred mission, creating a bilingual immersion environment, respecting and supporting the development of multiculturalism, bringing back the vibrant colours of childhood, encouraging critical thinking, and building a foundation for the development of future leaders.

    I have a Master's degree in pre school education from Beijing Normal University. I have been engaged in pre school education for 22 years, including 13 years as the Head of international pre schools. I have been in this industry since graduation as I love children and was touched by children during my internship in 2000. I have gradually understood that this career requires a lot of responsibility as the age of 3 to 6 is quite important to children's life. In these years, I have become more focused and devoted, and I love this job more. In the past 22 years, I have gained countless love, joy and touching moments, which makes me more determined to engage in the pre school education industry for my whole life.

    Bromsgrove School Mission Hills (BMH) Pre School is child-centred. We create an internationalised and immersive teaching and learning environment through "kindness, justice, courtesy, wisdom and integrity", create an open, respectful and inclusive cultural atmosphere with a team of professional internationalised teachers, and build a BMH learning community where children and teachers thrive.

    I am in charge of administration, logistics and safety. I will uphold the work style of "professionalism, dedication and collaboration" and serve children, parents and teachers well. Let us enjoy pre school education and every day at BMH. We cherish your children and we move towards your expectations.
