Shanghai's new British School in Gubei
I am pleased to announce the establishment of Britannica International School, Shanghai. The new school is accommodated in a newly rebuilt custom-built school. It has a capacity for 750 pupils from 2 to 18 years of age. It is situated within the high quality residential and educational area of Gubei / Hongqiao.
The unique feature of Britannica International School, Shanghai is the fact that the school is British owned, British managed and has British teachers.
Britannica has educational facilities of the highest quality. There are three specialist Science laboratories and three state-of-the-art Information Technology laboratories. There are also specialist Art and Design, Drama, Music, and Physical Education facilities. The sports facilities include a large and well equipped indoor sports hall and a 25-meter heated swimming pool. The outdoor facilities include a football pitch, basketball court, and a running track. The school also has a theatre, library and a spacious dining room.
The Britannica curriculum is based on the English National Curriculum enhanced to meet the needs of the expatriate population. Essentially this means that in addition to the core curriculum, there is the opportunity for the pupils to study Mandarin and to learn about the Culture, History and Geography of China, and to study other modern languages. Pupils are prepared for the Cambridge University International General Certificate of Secondary Education and the International Baccalaureate Examinations leading to British and international university entrance.
Special features of the programme are the high profile given to Information Technology and the extensive Language Programme.
There are safe play areas, each area reserved for a particular age group, for the pupils to play in at break and at lunchtime. The school campus is a safe and secure environment.
In short it is an ideal school for your children.
Do come and visit the school. You will be warmly welcome.
