Children at Great Ballard School have been celebrating Chinese New Year. Two groups of children - all the way from Beijing and Shenzhen in mainland China - have been showing Great Ballard Pupils how they celebrate Chinese New Year. To ring in the Year of the Pig they have enjoyed a lunch of sweet and sour pork, spring rolls and fortune cookies, been taking part in a Chopstick Challenge, experienced a Chinese dragon dance and have been learning about the culture and lives of children from across the world.

Great Ballard School has a great history of welcoming international students to join its pupils, teaching children from a young age about the world we live in and the importance of celebrating others cultures and teaching them about our way of life.

About Great Ballard

Great Ballard is an independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 2 to 13. It is situated in the magnificent Eartham House set in idyllic parkland just 10 minutes from Chichester.

Our children enjoy a vibrant and genuinely all round education that is exciting, challenging and stimulating. Academic study is central to what we do and we expect all our pupils to adopt a healthy work ethic, but we also believe that to truly educate we must celebrate the creative, physical, and spiritual, as much as the intellectual.

Our aim is to nurture happy, accomplished, and well rounded children. We value self confidence, but not arrogance, and applaud gentleness and humility. We appreciate unaffected good manners and embrace traditional values. We respect individuality and recognise success, but most essentially quality of character is regarded equally as highly as achievement.

We understand that parents have a choice of a number of independent schools in West Sussex, and each is unique. How do you know if Great Ballard is right for you? We think the only way to assess what we're all about is to come and see us. We are confident you will be able to appreciate how much we care about each and every one of our children and their individual needs. Our classes are small so we can give everyone the attention they deserve.
