About Us

Colchester Chinese School, formerly known as the Colchester Community Chinese School, was founded in April 2004 by a group of altruistic Chinese expatriates who are passionate about sharing the knowledge of Chinese art, history, music etc. as well as helping local children and adults learn Chinese.

It is the largest and oldest non-profit organisation for teaching Chinese in Colchester and surrounding areas. The success has simply come from more than a decade of scores of teachers' dedication and volunteers' great contribution. With better serving the community as one of its core values, Colchester Chinese School has worked closely with the local government, schools and communities in the last decade. It also has active collaboration with other Chinese schools in the UK, and a number of universities and cultural institutions in China.

It was part of the Colchester Chinese Culture Society before September 2016. In order to accommodate the expanding Chinese learning population in Essex and Suffolk, focus more on students' various educational requirements and individual development, the Colchester Chinese School became independent from the Colchester Chinese Culture Society in October 2016, with its official name changed to Colchester Chinese Educational Organisation (CCEO).



考切斯特中文学校(原名考切斯特社区中文学校)成立于2004年4月。一群住在考切斯特热衷于推广中华文化、致力华文教育的海外华人,有钱的出钱,有力的出力,筹组了这所学校。

考切斯特中文学校是考切斯特地区规模最大、历史最久的中文学校,属于非盈利的慈善组织。十二年来,组织者们、老师们和志愿者们,辛勤耕耘,无私奉献,让这所学校不断发展壮大,学生遍及考切斯特所在的埃塞克斯郡和相邻的萨福克郡。本着教育为本、服务社区的宗旨,考切斯特中文学校一直和地方政府、学校和社区保持着紧密联系。同时,也和英国其他中文学校、中国有关大学及文化机构广泛合作。
 
因应不断扩大的生源,为了提高教学质量,重视学生的各种需求,投入更多的精力于汉语及中国文化、艺术的教育,考切斯特中文学校于2016年10月脱离原先隶属的考切斯特中国文化协会,成为一个独立机构,正式名称为:考切斯特中文教育组织
