The Mandarin Excellence programme is a unique yet intensive language programme. It is funded by the Department for Education and delivered by the UCL Institute of Education in partnership with the British Council.

The Mandarin Excellence Programme has been run at De Lisle since September 2019. We have now have students in Years 7-11 and a group of Sixth Formers who are studying to complete HSK Level 1. Our first cohort of students are sitting their GCSE in the summer of 2024.
