  • Successful Students

    Students at our school are caring, respectful and understand what it takes to succeed.


Our Football programmes are well organised offering continuity through the teams and year groups. The structure allows our best players access to high class coaching and allows those who are developing their skills plenty of opportunity to progress through the teams.

The traditional values of hard work, dedication and sportsmanship are all held in high esteem, complemented by the total commitment of the coaching staff to individual needs, personal welfare and every student’s enjoyment of the game.

Football is an integral part of the curriculum and is played competitively throughout the school from Year 5; training and competing during the winter term. For the junior teams, the emphasis is on enjoying the game and each session is planned to challenge the players, whilst emphasising core skills at all times. As the boys progress into the Middle School, their basic skills are supplemented with more complex concepts as their understanding of the game grows. The emphasis for the Upper and Senior teams lies in developing greater consistency and improving performance through more structured practices and increased coaching time.

Coaching Staff

Every coach is a member of staff who manages the team; each member of staff is supported with a qualified or highly experienced Football coach who is a member of the PE department. This keeps the school club up to date with the latest Football practices and offers opportunity for position specific training sessions.

We also work with external Academies run by Nike and Ebbe Sand to offer high-level additional training and we encourage opportunities for students to play in other teams and leagues outside of school.


We field 3 teams; U-11, U-13 and U-15 who compete in local leagues with other Shanghai international schools.

We compete against some very strong teams. We host a number of tournaments and cross-training opportunities, in the past year we have hosted a number of overseas teams and coaches who have given our boys inspiration for the game.


Overseas tours for the teams occur every three years. Previous tours have visited Taiwan, Beijing and Hong Kong.
