Woking Chinese School is part of the Chinese Association of Woking (CAW) which is a non-profit, non-political and non-faith registered charity. The school was established in 1987 and moved to the present site at St John the Baptist School in 2003 to accommodate the growing number of students. 

The objective of Woking Chinese School is to promote the education of the Chinese language and an awareness of the Chinese culture. After more than 30 years of hard work by volunteers, Woking Chinese School has developed into one of the largest Chinese schools in the UK. There are currently around 300 students and 24 language classes. The students aged from 4 to adults. Woking Chinese School offers language classes in both Cantonese and Mandarin from reception to GCSE and A levels. The school also offers cultural activities classes in Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Dance and Calligraphy/Art.

By popular demand, CAW has also set up Chinese language playgroups in Cantonese and Mandarin to cater for children aged 2 to 4 since 2015.

Thanks to the efforts and hard work of the students, teachers, parents and volunteers, Woking Chinese School enjoys a vibrant and caring school community as well as excellent academic results. For instance, in 2017-18, our students achieved 26 A*, 1C in GCSE and 3 B in A level.
