Woking Chinese School


Update - 5 March 2021
In line with the latest government guidelines, Woking Chinese School will gradually return to SJB as follows:

1. From 13th March - the M9 (GCSE) class will resume face to face teaching at SJB.

2. From 24th April  - our school will reopen at SJB that day. We will resume the rota of face to face and online teaching adopted before the lockdown. Your form teacher will notify you of any changes. 

Throughout the lockdown period Woking Chinese School has continued language teaching for its students by online classes. However, we believe that face to face teaching is more effective for language learning and has the additional benefit of fostering social relationships.  Our aim for the future is to bring back face to face teaching for all language and cultural activity classes as soon as it can be safe for our students and their families, our teachers and volunteer helpers. 

From the start of the school year on September 12th 2020, about half our classes will be taught face to face and the remainder on-line. Our Covid-19 procedures will maintain social distancing within the classrooms and minimise interaction between different classes through the school. Hygienic procedures will be emphasised in the classroom and applied throughout the school. Only students and staff are allowed in the main school building and parents who wish to contact school management are encouraged to do so online. More detail of our Covid-19 procedures is here



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.
