Success is at the heart of Britannica International School, Shanghai: success academically, socially and personally. We build close relationships between home, student, parents and teachers to continually tailor your child’s learning experiences.

Our central location means that most students’ journey to school is as easy as possible, leaving them more time to benefit from our wide range of co-curriculum clubs and activities. The small class sizes, give each teacher the time to offer a personalised approach to each child; working with them to understand their areas of interest so that we can support them at the right level.

The close nurturing environment of our school means that all students have the care and support that they need to be effective and happy learners and that good communication between home and school is always maintained.

Our daily routine starts early and often even before the bustle of buses and students have arrived. Early morning can mean the swimming squad practising in the pool or our basketball players in the sports hall receiving some extra coaching ready for their latest tournament. For most students though, the day starts with their arrival on one of our many school buses. Our bus routes having been all tailor made to meet family needs, with pick-ups direct from every child’s apartment or compound.

The English National Curriculum is rigorous and we do expect the best from each child, throughout the day. After a challenging day, students leave the school with an appropriate amount of homework; designed to consolidate their day’s learning so that they are ready to move forward the next day.

'My children have thoroughly enjoyed preparing for and presenting these traditional Chinese art forms. The dragon dance, fan dance, Guanyin dance, and Chinese drums were especially impressive.

Thank you for giving our family the opportunity to feel the excitement of the New Year season and learn more about this rich culture.'

Lisa, Mother of students in Years 2, 3, 5 and 7
