It is managed by BE Education and is a British Boarding School, from Kindergarten through to year 13. CZOIC prepares students to study abroad at universities primarily in the United Kingdom and United States by offering both IGCSE and A-Level study programmes.[1] OIC is open to both Chinese and foreign students aged 2–18. Both the primary and secondary schools are built on the foundations of the British International Curriculum.

The school moved to its new campus in February 2015, a site which includes three teaching buildings, a purpose built Watersports Centre (swimming pool and boathouse), a theatre and drama building, separate KG building, indoor basketball and tennis courts and outdoor sports facilities comprising a full size athletics track and stadium with a grass sports field. The school's capacity is 1000 students, which is projected to be achieved by September 2018.

In September 2016 it was rebranded as Wycombe Abbey School and is now the first overseas affiliate of Wycombe Abbey School in the United Kingdom. It educates both boys and girls while the mother school in the UK only educates girls. As of 2016 the school had students from at least 18 countries, with Chinese making up about 80% of the student body.[2]
