Flying High - Principal's Blog

23 June 2014

I wrote last week about the pride we have in our community and in the students’ achievements in so many events and so many different aspects of school life. As this is the last newsletter article for this year I would also like to acknowledge their tremendous academic achievements.

The final reports for each student have just been completed and it is fantastic to see such amazing progress. We set High Performance Targets at the school which are at least one level or grade higher than that expected in the UK. We believe that when teachers and parents have high ambition for the students then they will nearly always rise to this ambition. It has been such a pleasure this week to see the reports and to see so many students achieving their High Performance Targets, and in many cases exceeding them. This exceptional standard of academic achievement is another reason to feel proud of our students and I sincerely congratulate and thank all the members of staff and all the parents who have helped the students reach such magnificent heights.

Our IB and IGCSE students have completed their examinations and are now enjoying a very well deserved break. We look forward to the grades coming out in July and August and are hopeful of some record breaking results.

I would like to conclude by recognising the achievements throughout the year and sincerely thank all members of our community for their amazing contribution to so many successes. This school is a truly special place to be part of and it is a privilege to work with our students each and every day.

To those families leaving Shanghai we wish you the very best for the future and please know that the school is here for you if we can be of any assistance in the future. Once you have been part of our community you remain part of it.

To all others returning, we wish you a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Safe travels and we look forward to seeing you again in August. We all have it in our hands to make the next school year the best there has ever been…….. and I am sure we will do so!
