The internationally recognised curriculum at our British school in Shanghai was created by our world-leading education experts and reimagines education through six key educational pillars.

Academic Excellence
Our learning approach gives your child the tools and support they need to achieve outstanding results, creating opportunities at the world's top universities.
Academic excellence

At BISS Puxi, we have a longstanding record of excellence in both the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). We’re maintaining this legacy by employing the best educational talent combined with the latest teaching methods. 

In 2021, three of our students achieved a perfect score of 45 points on their IB exams and the average for the graduating class was an impressive 38.4 points – 5 points above the global average. These results demonstrate the hard work of our students and how well they are supported by our outstanding teachers and school community.

Exceptional Learning Experiences
At BISS Puxi, learning stretches beyond the classroom. Your child will develop the confidence and resilience to make their mark on the world, while understanding the importance of collaboration and teamwork.
Exceptional Learning Experiences

None of us can predict the future, but a world-class education can prepare your child for it. As well as cutting-edge STEAM facilities, our students take part in local, national, and international expeditions. These experiences challenge them, teach them the value of giving back and show them how to become a better global citizen.

Additionally, we host a series of wellbeing programmes and seminars throughout the year for both students and parents. These programmes teach valuable skills like time management and stress reduction, elevating the learning experience for all involved.

Our state-of-the-art STEAM centres allow your child to solve real-world problems, preparing them for the careers of the future. Our film and music studios help students develop creativity and ignite a passion for the digital world.

World's Best Teachers
Outstanding teachers make outstanding schools, which is why we invest in the world's best educators.
World's best teachers

At BISS Puxi, our teachers are all highly qualified and accredited. By focusing on Academic Excellence, STEAM, The Arts, Internationalism, and Sports, your child can take opportunities to follow their passions and excel.

While all our teachers have achieved the highest accolades at college and university, we take select teachers on subject-specific training every year with MIT and The Juilliard School. This exclusive training means our teachers are on the cutting edge of their profession.

Our social purpose
We're a local international school that will teach your child how to make positive difference to the world they live in.
Our social purpose

Social and environmental engagement forms an important part of BISS Puxi activities with parents, teachers and students all contributing to a better future.

Our inspiring Social Impact Programme challenges our students to think about what they can do to make a difference. Organised with UNICEF, the programme supports the UN Sustainable Development 2030 agenda. Every year, we set a Global Challenge which sees students from across Nord Anglia come together in seminars, workshops and speaking opportunities at the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) at the UN HQ in New York. The goal is simple: helping our students to influence world leaders and make the world a better place.

The Nord Anglia Education family
When you join our diverse school community, you become part of the Nord Anglia Education family of students, parents and alumni – opening a world of opportunities.
