About Nguyen Sieu – A Proud Vietnamese School
Nguyen Sieu School, located at Mac Thai To Street in Cau Giay District, is a selective entry school. The school wishes to live by its vision, that is, to become a premier bilingual school that offers world-class education while upholding traditional Vietnamese values. At the heart of our educational program is a core commitment to ensuring that our students are well-equipped to take their place in an increasingly inter-connected and globalised world.
As a Cambridge international school network member since 2013, the school delivers an integrated curriculum between Cambridge International and Vietnamese National Programs. Our IGCSE and A-Level results consistently stand above the global average. Nguyen Sieu students are among the high achievers and top performers in IGCSE, AS, and A-Level exams. Nguyen Sieu School is also a Study Center of NCUK, delivering the NCUK International Foundation Year (IFY) as an alternative pathway to universities.
Our school has set out to prioritise the support of aspiring teachers to secure precise qualifications and competencies for school teaching through our network of current qualified teachers and trained in-school mentors. In 2023, Nguyen Sieu becomes a Teacher Development Hub School of TES Institute (Times Educational Supplement), serving as an authorised placement site for practice teaching as part of the iPGCE and MA programmes offered by the University of East London (UEL).
