You want the best for your child. So do we.

Our school philosophy at BISS is to ‘Be Ambitious’. We have five pillars which are the foundations on which we build this vision. Sport is one of them.

So what does this mean for your child at the British International School Shanghai, Puxi? Well, for our BISS Lions, this means they strive to be the best that they can be and to push the boundaries of what even they thought was previously possible.


Sport for all

The BISS Lions are a community of students and parents that truly love sport. At BISS Puxi we offer over 40 sports at a multitude of levels, progressing from mass participation to specialist competition and elitism, providing a pathway for each child. The benefit of sports education go far beyond developing physical strength and fitness. Through training, participation and competition the BISS Lions develop skills in discipline, communications, leadership, performance under pressure and teamwork.

Our dedicated team of sports educators include our Elite Performance Coach and Olympic Gold Medal Athlete, Marlon Devonish. His role includes encouraging every child to get involved and experience as many sports as possible with the mind that they might choose one or more sports that they find both challenging and exhilarating. His experience and journey of preparation for the Olympics at Athens in 2004 provides inspiration for our pupils.

Mr Devonish trains with children at all levels through ‘Project Inspire’ and works with our higher level athletes to pass on real world advice on competing at the highest level across a range of sports.

A range of opportunities

At BISS Puxi, there really is something for everyone. We offer opportunities to participate or compete in athletics, basketball, football, volleyball, tennis, badminton, netball, rugby and swimming. Our training programmes in each of these sports is designed specifically to develop a performance mindset that gives our BISS Lions the techniques to train smart, develop themselves physically, to compete and to win. We compete in these sports across the region. We are part of the Nord Anglia family of schools and BISS Lions compete annually in our regional Nord Anglia Global Games across China. Students also compete at a high level within the Shanghai Schools Sports network, through ACAMIS competitions for International schools across the China region and via FOBISIA for competitions across Asia.

A new look

If you’ve visited the school recently, then you’ll have noticed our new look branding for the BISS Lions. We are immensely proud of all of our pupils who represent the school through our different sports – wearing the ‘badge’ of the Lions is important to us and I’m delighted to introduce our new branding for the future. It’s contemporary in its design and reflects our modern approach to sport. The whole range of sports kits is now available for our competing teams and personalised shirts will also be available. As you’d expect, we also have available merchandise for supporting parents and friends in our new designs. Thank you to all of the students and staff who helped to shape these new designs.
