Britannica International School remains the only British owned, British managed and British staffed school in Shanghai. Recognised for the quality of its provision it is staffed by a strong team of British qualified teachers. Extremely well resourced the needs of each individual child are met through our personalised teaching programmes and small classes. The English National Curriculum lies at the core of our educational programme, with the high academic standards that it represents and the quality of its world recognised externally accredited examinations. Children from 2-5 years old follow the UK Early Years Foundation Stage Framework before joining Key Stage 1 of the English National Curriculum in the year after they reach 5 years old. Secondary pupils work towards a broad range of IGCSE examinations, which are sat at the age of 16 which then allow them to graduate into the Sixth Form where Britannica is the only British School in the city offering A levels to secure university entrance worldwide post 18 years old. The broader curriculum reflects the best provision in a UK independent school, with plenty of opportunities to develop in the sports, arts and music. After-school activities take place four days a week and are mostly free. The school encourages a sense of formality while not neglecting the fact that children need time to be creative, explore their own interests, play with friends, make and learn from mistakes and understand their role as a team player as well as a team leader.
Parents are invited to view the school website for further information and submit an application form to express initial interest in the school. Registration at the school to secure a place can be made on submission of satisfactory school reports from your child’s current school. For children already in Shanghai there is an assessment test.
Pupils with any level of English are invited to apply for a place at Britannica International School. Our strong English as an Additional Language Programme offers all non-native English speakers an opportunity to quickly develop their English Language skills.
