Dear Parents,

I am honoured and delighted to welcome you to a new academic year at The British School of Beijing, Shunyi, whether you are returning after the holiday or are new to the Nord Anglia family.

We will be working with you this year to ensure that your child is happy, challenged and fulfilled in all that they do and to provide the very best environment and support for your child to exceed their potential.

Our rigorous academic programme throughout the school will challenge your children to be the very best they can be. We will enrich their experiences and ensure that they are aiming high, working towards world-class outcomes and developing a variety of 21st century skills to prepare them for a successful future.

The Nord Anglia family of schools provides entirely unique opportunities for your child to work with the very best organisations in their respective fields through collaborations with The Juilliard School, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and UNICEF. This blend of a rigorous academic programme alongside broader experiences and a wide variety of opportunities in sports, the arts, music, technology and extra-curricular activities develops a range of essential leadership and communication skills as well as the resilience, independence, determination to succeed.

We will be working with you to ensure that your child is happy, challenged and fulfilled in all that they do and to provide the very best environment and support for your child to exceed their potential.

Our ‘Be Ambitious’ philosophy is at the centre of all that we do. Your child is unique and will receive individual nurturing so that they will progress more than in any other school and have the support that they need to grow as confident and responsible citizens.

At our school you will find an open door to a warm, welcoming, nurturing environment where the needs of your child are at the centre of all that we do. We are committed to working with you make sure that you are central to the decisions that affect your child’s education and that you feel part of our school community.

As we start a new academic year it is a perfect opportunity for you and your children to set new goals for a successful year ahead and I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you and your children.  Together we will celebrate the success of your children at our school, and I offer you a very warm welcome to The British School of Beijing, Shunyi.
