It gives me the greatest pleasure to welcome you to the British School of Beijing, Shunyi.
At the very heart of our school is a rigorous academic programme which challenges our students to be the very best they can be; to broaden their horizons and raise their expectations and aspirations. This programme will support their applications to the very best universities in the world and to go on to realise their dreams.
We are genuinely developing and nurturing the world’s leaders of tomorrow, across a variety of fields to the very highest standards. For example, only 200 students take the very challenging IB Diploma Further Mathematics paper in the world…. three of these students study at our school.
To be highly successful in today’s complex world students need a wide range of skills as well as the highest academic qualifications. Our students are provided with unique range of opportunities in sport, music, technology and the arts; to work with the very best in these fields and learn to set their sights high and not accept second best.
The powerful combination of our strong academic programme and wide range of extra-curricular experiences develops a range of essential personal qualities and attributes such as resilience, strength of character, self-confidence and the ability to be comfortable in differing social and work contexts.
