A warm welcome awaits

JOINING OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY

We’re delighted you’re considering NAIS Pudong for your child’s education. 

From the moment you first get in touch to when your child starts their first day at school, we're here to help you every step of the way
 
We want everyone to have an exceptional learning experience at NAIS Pudong, so we carefully review every student’s application before offering them a place in the school. 
 
If your child is going into Year 7 or above, we will arrange for an online assessment to help us plan the perfect learning pathway for him or her. 

We believe that students learn best alongside classmates who are at a similar stage of development and maturity, so we keep children within their correct age group. Please see our reference table below for more information.

We're an English-speaking school, so understanding English is an advantage. However, our students come from all over the world, and we provide EAL (English as an Additional Language) lessons for anyone who needs help improving their English. 

Some students may need extra support due to mild learning difficulties. This can usually be arranged through the development of an IEP (Individual Education Plan) designed by our Learning Support Coordinator.  

As a school, we want to do what is best for every student in our care. This means sometimes we are not able to support every student with additional learning support needs. Rest assured we will work with each family to find the right solution for their child. 

If you have any questions our friendly admissions team is here to support you through every step. We have gone through the relocation process with our own families and our children attend the school.
