Principal’s Welcome


Dear Parents,

Welcome to Foshan EtonHouse International School! I am so delighted to be the Founding Principal of this wonderful school, and having watched it grow, serving the needs of international and local families living and working here.

At Foshan EtonHouse International School we ensure that each student and family is the right fit for us as we continue to grow. We are a  successful, vibrant, truly international centre for learning, discovery and thought. I am directly involved in the admissions process for each student and his or her family.

This beautiful campus offers wonderful facilities for our British international programme. We are an IB PYP accredited school; IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. For our older pupils, we offer the rigourous and highly respected IGCSE’s and A Level programmes as our students prepare to enter universities all over the world. IGCSE’s and ‘A’ Levels are undertaken through Cambridge, through whom we are accredited.

The FEIS teaching staff is fully qualified and the teachers are appointed not only from the U.K., but from countries around the world, giving us a first-hand global approach to all aspects of learning.

One can only truly appreciate a school by visiting, so I urge you to come and see us, personally. I shall be delighted to welcome you!

My very best and fondest regards


Grainne O’Reilly
