Message from Executive Superintendent

Welcome to the Nord Anglia Chinese International School Shanghai!


Before coming to Shanghai, I had worked in the international education industry for over 27 years. In the past fifteen years, I have held senior leadership positions in schools around the world. Since 2013, I have joined Nord Anglia Education Group and have worked at the British International School in Hanoi, Vietnam and Dover Court International School in Singapore. In June 2020, as an Executive Superintendent, I am very honored to join the Nord Anglia Chinese International School Shanghai.

As the first leading bilingual school founded by Nord Anglia Education Group in China, NACIS Shanghai has rapidly grown into a local outstanding bilingual school after years of vigorous development. Under the leadership of the outstanding faculty team, we have blended the Shanghai National Curriculum with Nord Anglia’s international elements, we supervise and help each NACIS Shanghai student through the immersion of cross-cultural exchanges by rigorous academic requirements.

Our unique vision is to support the development of Chinese children in their home language, culture and heritage while also ensuing they have the qualifications, skills and attributes to thrive wherever they choose to go to university and then on until the world of work.

Our balanced mix of National and International teachers, all of whom are recruited for their high level qualifications, experience and passion for teaching, deliver a robust and challenging curriculum that has already seen our graduates go onto top 50 global universities Our students are genuinely Beyond Bilingual and can operate with great ease within a Chinese or International environment. Our personalized approach means that all students receive the challenge and support to ensure they make the very best possible academic and social progress in their time with us.


Last year we opened our fantastic and futuristic new campus, where most of our Secondary teaching and learning takes place. This provides us with wonderful specialist teaching spaces but also mirrors the experience our graduates will encounter when they leave NACIS and move onto university. The NACIS difference means we add to our rigorous curriculum with opportunities to visit our expedition centres in Europe and Africa, learn performing arts in a programme designed in partnership with Julliard and participate in STEAM challenges set by MIT. Our extra-curricular programme allows a broad enrichment in a wide choice of activities including the prestigious Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.


On behalf of the faculty and staff of NACIS Shanghai, I sincerely invite you to come to visit our amazing campus for experience the first-class campus facilities and the unique charm of campus culture.
