During his visit, the Lord Provost said that “It is breathtaking to see what you have achieved here in Shenzhen in such a short time and fantastic to hear you are using Edinburgh manufacturers and suppliers for the authentic Scottish look and feel of the School. I bet the students can’t wait to come here to take advantage of exchange opportunities. It is fantastic for Edinburgh that you are the first school in Scotland to set up an overseas campus and I very much look forward to coming back to Shenzhen later this year to see the school running”.
