Our GCSE and IB students have started the term at a brisk pace. There is a strong focus on achievement and for many a reflection upon their holiday homework activities. We treat our students like academic athletes who we are able to challenge every day to improve upon their personal best. The challenge for these students taking exams is to reach their golden targets through the support of their teachers and by adopting a positive mindset with a determination to succeed.
Our younger students at Key Stage 3 have enjoyed a number of exciting experiences in the classrooms through themed learning projects this week. This has helped to ease them gently back into their school routines and allow them to build new friendships through collaborative learning.
I very much look forward to seeing you at the school soon and wish you and your family a successful year in Shanghai!
