Lauren Cole


Primary class teacher

Miss Cole is looking forward to coming to BISS as part of the Primary team this year and feels privileged to be working alongside outstanding colleagues to bring out the very best in every child. This will be her first year in Shanghai having previously taught in the UK and Dubai. She is looking forward to experiencing a new culture and country within a well-established, successful school.


Miss Cole studied in the UK at the University of the West of England. Her degree was a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Primary Education, specializing in Mathematics and Science. However, she also has an underlying passion for Art and Design Technology. As a result of this, throughout her teaching career she has led these subjects throughout the whole school. This is a reflection of her passion for creativity within the primary curriculum. Furthermore, this drew her to teaching at BISS PUXI as it is an institution that promotes strong, holistic values for providing children with a joyful experience full of modern approaches to education combining innovative, creative teaching methods and advanced technological provisions.


Miss Cole is excited to continue to provide an original, modern approach that will allow children to begin to take ownership of their knowledge and learning. Miss Cole’s teaching, based on a current, stimulating and exciting curriculum instils children with the open minds and knowledge they will need to make a positive contribution to society. 

As well as teaching, Miss Cole enjoys looking after her wellbeing and the wellbeing of others around her. Keeping fit through going to the gym and horse riding gives her the opportunity to catch up with her friends, ‘switch off’ from day to day life and meet new people. On the weekends, she enjoys nothing more than walking her dog with her mum and socialising over dinner in the evenings. Teaching internationally has been something that she has loved as not only has she met and taught amazing people from around the world, it has also given her the chances to travel to new and exciting places. She is extremely excited to embrace the next chapter of her life in Shanghai and cannot wait to discover everything it has to offer!
