Message from Principal

As we finish the first month of this first term of our 2019-20 Academic Year , it has been a real pleasure to welcome both familiar faces on their return to, and new faces as they join, the British School of Nanjing. Most pleasing of all was the smiles on those faces as they walked into our newly refurbished entrance area and on to see the changes throughout the campus that took place over our summer break.

The new entrance area is designed to reflect the warm welcome that we hope all visitors receive as they enter the school, with meeting rooms, and a more visible and accessible reception desk. The other changes reflect our ambitions and plans for this coming year. The library has been redesigned and organised to include a more natural layout, clear information and Global Campus access points to help students connect to others around the world. Our Robotics Room has doubled in size and will serve as a hub for STEAM as our students take on more 21st Century challenges through our collaboration with MIT; and with the addition of full-length blackout curtains for all the windows, our Dance Suite now acts as a centre for Drama. Alongside this, the changing rooms for our gym have expanded and are now fitted, like those in the swimming pool, with showers to allow us to expand our competitive sport offering.

Of course, the physical changes to the campus are redundant if we don’t also have the training, the understanding and the will to see them used and whilst construction teams were busy on campus, our staff and students have been equally busy over the last few months. Just a sample of the highlights include:

As one of our first big Global Campus events, two of our students spent a week in New York as ambassadors at the Nord Anglia UNICEF Summit , taking part in a Model United Nations debate, and spending time at the United Nations building and with UNICEF working on the Global Development Goals . Tara and Lucas will be sharing their experiences with other students in the coming year, giving more and more students motivation to access the Global Campus

Our Drama Lead, Mrs. Whiles, also in New York over the summer, took part in a week of high-level training for Drama, Music and Dance, led by the experts at the Julliard School. Over the course of the year, we will be looking to develop these key areas of the Performing Arts throughout the school, linked with visiting performers and experts. The exposure to talent that this will provide our students should be inspirational!

Mr. Griffiths spent a week at MIT, taking part in challenges alongside other STEAM leads from across our network of schools. The exchange of ideas, the chance to meet leaders in the field, and to learn about how we best teach students to use technology effectively, provides the best start as we look to participate in STEAM festivals and school-based challenges throughout this year.

And Mr. Plummer was putting the final touches on our sports programme, including the upcoming Global Games Under 11s Football tournament which we will be hosting. This event will include teams from across China come together at our campus for an ambitious festival of football!

I am sure with the developments that have taken place, and continue to take place, we will continue to do what we do best – helping all our students find their passion… and excel!
