BASIS International School Park Lane Harbour

Providing our Students with a Transformative Early Childhood and K-12 Education.

BASIS International School Park Lane Harbour

Overlooking the South China Sea’s Xiaojing Bay, BASIS International School Park Lane Harbour is nestled in the hills of a master-planned beach community in the municipality of Huizhou. The campus opened in 2018 to students in Grades 5-9, and now offers courses through Grade 12. The school celebrated its first full graduating class in 2022, with graduates accepted to numerous top universities around the world.

Park Lane Harbour is the second BASIS International School to offer boarding. The serene campus has excellent facilities, including state-of-the-art classrooms, soccer field and track, gymnasium, basketball and tennis courts, indoor heated swimming pool, expansive library, Apple computer lab, cafeteria, black-box theater, auditorium, and boarding facilities for students.

From the Head of School

Our goal at BASIS International School Park Lane Harbour (BIPH) is to be one of the finest boarding schools in all of China, if not anywhere. As part of the rapidly expanding network of BASIS International and Bilingual Schools, which now boasts seven campuses, we benefit from the vision, resources and experiences of our larger organization. And yet, here in Park Lane Harbour we are also developing a unique and exciting vision and atmosphere all our own.

It all begins in the classroom, where Subject Expert Teachers are laser focused on delivering the most meaningful and effective learning experiences to our students. Beyond the classroom, our large boarding program of 600+ Grade 5 – 12 students, allows us to focus additional attention on the holistic growth of the young people in our care, with a values-rich approach that recognizes the importance of wellness, character development and citizenship. Our students put together remarkable college resumes and are exceptionally talented and hard-working in the classroom. We are proud of them for that; but not as proud as we are for what they grow to become during their time with us and as they prepare to head out into the world.

The work we aspire to is complemented by a just-about-perfect physical setting. Located on the edge of Huizhou in the beachside resort community of Park Lane Harbour, our campus sits above the ocean, pressed into the natural beauty of the place like a jewel in the mountainside. The town boasts a spectacular strand of beach, many seaside walking paths and a warm and intimate, countryside feel. At the same time, we are located near the cities of Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong, and so we are well-situated for the best of all worlds–peaceful distance from the bustle of the city, easy access to major hubs, and convenient jumping off points for exploration of the rest of China and the region. As at all BASIS International Schools, our facilities and resources are top rate, the support for doing our work well unending.

If any or all of this resonates with you, I’d encourage you to explore opportunities here in Park Lane Harbour. It’s quite a place and it’s quite a time to join our winning BIPH team. I hope I’ll get a chance to tell you more about us!

Our Campus and Location

Living in Park Lane Harbour (Huizhou)


BASIS International School Park Lane Harbour is located in a beachside, planned community along the coast of Xiaojing Bay just north of Shenzhen and south of the town of Huizhou--a modern town with a white-sand beach that offers numerous trails for walking, hiking and cycling. BASIS International School Park Lane Harbour is a sprawling, green campus with numerous athletic facilities in and out doors. The community is a growing enclave with a small grocery market and several restaurants near the coastline within walking distance to the school.

Restaurants near the school include: Tai Hing for Hong Kong food, Mu Wu Barbecue, Ju’s Fusion Restaurant, Yoshidoya for Japanese fast food, Pezzo for Italian Cuisine, Honeymoon Desert, Pacific Coffee, and a Bakery. There are various agencies for apartment rentals, bicycle shop, watersport rentals, and a Sisyphe book store where you can find English books. High Street is still expanding, and it is very easy to get around the area.

Huizhou is relatively peaceful and calm compared to other big cities and metropolis in China. There are a couple of places for people who especially prefer nature to visit in Huizhou, including: West Lake, Huizhou Xunliao Bay, Honghua Lake Water Park and Daya Bay. Trip Advisor, Lonely Planet and China Highlights are three popular travel websites that offer more information on Huizhou.

It’s a little over an hour’s drive to Shenzhen and the Hong Kong border from BASIS International Park Lane Harbour. So, the big city is an easy weekend getaway from our peaceful beachside town.
