CCiL Croydon Chinese School

School Objectives

  • To spread the Christian spirit, based on the love of Christ.
  • To promote Chinese culture by teaching the younger generation of overseas Chinese the virtues of traditional Chinese culture.
  • To nurture pupils towards an all-round development through the school curriculum and out-of-school activities.

The Chinese School belongs to the Chinese Church in London (a non-profit making organization), currently renting Trinity School to hold classes until December 2017. Trinity School is situated at the junction between Addiscombe Road and Shirley Road, less than two miles from East Croydon train station. Buses number 119, 466, 194 and 198 all pass the school entrance.

From January 2018, we will start renting Archbishop Tenison’s High School to hold classes. The school is situated at Selborne Road, South Croydon, less than a mile from East Croydon train station. The school is well served by buses, 64 and 433 stop at the Selborne Road stop on Park Hill Road. The closest tram stop Sandilands is 0.6 miles away.

Teaching Staff

The school invites suitably educated Christians to be volunteer teachers. Teachers also devised teaching materials for pupils based on the excellent textbooks currently used in Hong Kong and those published by the UK Federation of Chinese Schools. Teaching materials are well designed and practical to use.  Teachers employ creative teaching methods to arouse pupils’ learning interest.


The school enrolls pupils from 5 years of age to 17, from the beginners’ class to GCSE class. Those who are interested in staying in our school and who satisfy the age requirement can request for an application form directly. When the form is completed, please return it to the school office.
