Principal's Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the British International School, Shanghai, Puxi website. We are very proud of our vibrant international school community and our reputation for providing an outstanding quality of education and results. We value academic success highly, but it is also our belief that the all round development of each child is just as important. Our students are ambitious, our teaching teams are innovative and our school environment is dynamic, ensuring that education on offer is amongst the very best available anywhere in the world.

The British International School offers a British style education to the international community of Shanghai, leading to qualifications that are recognized, valued and respected around the world in universities and institutes of further education.

Our campus has first class facilities resourced to the highest level and staffed with dedicated, skilled and committed teachers, ensuring that BISS education is amongst the very best available anywhere in the world. BISS Teachers are typified by their dedication and commitment, and our continuing professional development means that we make the best use of contemporary educational practices. 

You will find that BISS is a very welcoming community and new students very quickly feel at home here. The happiness and contentment of our students is of utmost importance to us: the academic success that we have achieved here comes about through rigour, hard work and discipline, but also through a very strong pastoral element that accompanies the emotional development of our students.

This is absolutely vital and it is why we purposefully nurture a working environment that means students work hard, work well, but also take risks and try new ideas in their learning processes.  Indeed, students must BE AMBITIOUS as GLOBAL CITIZENS LEARNING TOGETHER.

If you are a prospective parent please browse our website in order to gain a snapshot of what our school is like and what we have to offer, or arrange a visit in person.

We look forward to meeting you in person and talking to you about our educational programmes.

Dr Neil Hopkin FRSA, Principal
