Britannica International School – 2017/18 Academic Year Teaching Staff

Committed to school’s vision and mission and emphasising a personalised approach to education Britannica International School recognises the need to adapt and be creative with its curriculum, teaching and pupil learning to meet the needs of individual students.

The school encourages a sense of formality, while not neglecting the fact that children need time to be creative, explore their own interests, play with their friends, take a lead in developing a sense of responsibility, make and learn from mistakes , have a growing empathy for the needs of others and understand their role as a team player as well as a team leader. Britannica is committed to creating leaders out of today’s learners and an understanding in pupils of their role as effective global citizens.


Britannica is a small school with a big heart!

My daughter has been at the school for 3 months and already I am surprised and thrilled that you have taken her on a residential trip, had a Sports Day and an International Day. I am now looking forward to the Swimming Gala and the 'Wizard of Oz' show.

In Lizzie's words - Mum, it's just like my school in UK!

Well done, Britannica!

Catherine (Mother of Year 10 Student)

We have two children at Britannica who joined when the Shanghai school opened. Better than any other school in Puxi, the school gives us the best of both worlds - not too big so our kids don't get lost amongst a 1000 students and every teacher knows every kid, yet also great teachers and small classes so our kids get PROPER attention. Both my wife and I and our kids love it.
